Jeter, Oswalt lead Final Vote




We're halfway to the wire in the Ameriquest All-Star Final Vote and it's almost too close to call.

The balloting continues until 8 p.m. ET Wednesday, so you still have plenty of time to select one final nominee from each league to go to Detroit for the 76th All-Star Game on July 12 and represent that league's 32nd and final roster spot.


After one day of balloting, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter leads the American League voting by a hair over Chicago White Sox outfielder Scott Podsednik.


The AL's other nominees, in order of current position in the voting, are Minnesota Twins outfielder Torii Hunter, Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui and outfielder Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.


In the National League, Houston Astros right-handed starter Roy Oswalt, no doubt helped by his strong performance in a 4-1 win over San Diego on Monday, leads and is followed closely by closer Trevor Hoffman of the San Diego Padres and sinkerballer Brandon Webb of the Arizona Diamondbacks.


Closer Billy Wagner and starter Brett Myers, both of the Philadelphia Phillies, are fourth and fifth in the voting in the NL.

i'm no jeter fan nor a yankees fan but he's put up very strong numbers this year. he probably deserves the pick. but big ups to the fans for giving the votes to tejada as the starter.


He made it last year and did not deserve it....so clip him out a year he might be deserving.

Man, I think I would take Hunter in all of this, seriously. Too bad he's not going to win.
