Soriano, Soto Still Lead by Comfortable Margins in All-Star Voting

The latest All-Star balloting results are in, and as of Tuesday, both Alfonso Soriano and rookie catcher Geovony Soto have comfortable leads in their respective categories. With three starting spots available in the National League outfield, Fukudome is making a strong bid to be a starter in his first Major League season as well, with 100,000 more votes than the veteran Ken Griffey Jr. (Griffey let the NL ballot last year with 2,986,818 votes; this year’s leader so far in all categories is Chase Utley with 1,743,548, or 1 million more than his closest competition, the Cubs’ Mark DeRosa).
