    Carlos Gonzalez in danger of missing All-Star Game

    I just want people to take a second and understand the kind of numbers Carlos Gonzalez is putting up this year. He#$%$ .313, is tied for the NL lead in HRs with 19, leads MLB in runs, leads NL in total bases, and is honestly holding his own in league lead for RBIs. He is currently ranked 2nd behind Miguel Cabrera for best player in baseball, followed closely by Chris Davis.

    However, despite these incredible stats, he is 7th in NL OF all-star voting, behind Justin Upton, Bryce Harper (injured), Carlos Beltran, Ryan Braun (injured), Shin-Soo Choo, and Hunter Pence. Although these are all good players, none of them are putting up better total numbers than CarGo, and the only other 2 I voted for in my ballots were Upton and Beltran.

    Understand that I am not a Rockies fan, but just someone who realizes that for someone so talented to miss the All-Star game but potentially be up for the MVP this season, is a tragedy. Let's get him in the top 5 where he belongs so if Harper and Braun miss with injuries, he can start in RF.
