Utley Takes Over All NL Vote-Getters

Phillies second baseman Chase Utley took over Albert Pujols' overall lead in National League votes with 2,273,355.

Pujols still leads all first basemen, with Ryan Howard about a million votes behind.

David Wright continues to lead all third basemen followed by Ryan Zimmerman, Chipper Jones, and Pedro Feliz.

Hanley Ramirez isn't too far behind leader Jimmy Rollins. Rollins only leads Ramirez by about 80,000 votes.

Yadier Molina continues to earn votes at the catchers position leading Brian McCann, Jason Kendell and Carlos Ruiz.

Raul Ibanez stays in first among outfielders, however the race is very tight between Ibanez, Ryan Braun, Carlos Beltran, Alfonso Soriano, Shane Victorino, and Manny Ramirez (who dropped to sixth). All are within a few thousand of each other.

In the American League, Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis are barely 1,000 votes apart. Justin Morneau is still hanging in there.

Ian Kinsler leads reigning MVP Dustin Pedroia in the voting. Derek Jeter, Joe Mauer, and Evan Longoria each have a substantial lead at their respected positions.

Jason Bay, Josh Hamilton (who is injured) and Ichiro lead the oufield in a tight race.
