CLEVELAND—MLB released the first round of vote totals from AL All-Star balloting today, and it seems Evan Longoria is as popular as ever.

With 664,060 votes, Longoria is barely second to Derek Jeter (664,630) as the leading vote-getter among all AL players. Longoria, of course, made the All-Star Game last year as a rookie when the fans voted him in as the final player on the AL roster.

Longoria has a massive lead over the second-ranked AL third baseman, Michael Young of the Rangers, who has 296,025 votes.

Only two other Rays are listed among the leaders at their positions, with Carl Crawford ranking sixth among outfielders (260,325) and Jason Bartlett fourth among shortstops (233,482).

Why would he possibly get all those votes, and why is he still popular, it doesn’t make any sense!
