NL All-Star Game 2011 Voting Update: Troy Tulowitzki's Lead Over Jose Reyes Narrows

Voting for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game is over inside stadiums, but online balloting will continue through the end of Thursday, June 30. Will Colorado Rockies shortstop be able to hold his now 244,832-vote lead over the New York Mets' Jose Reyes? From a half a million vote lead just a few weeks ago to just under a quarter of a million votes, it will be a race to the finish. Reyes does have a league-high .341 batting average and 14 triples, but then All-Star Game voting isn't so clear cut on the criteria for voting. Still, at 2.9 million votes Tulowitzki should have no trouble surpassing 3 million before all is said and done. This time Tulowitzki should be able to play in an All-Star Game (injury kept him out last year).

The only other Rockies' player to appear in the voting is still outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. He moved up to 10th overall among NL outfielders with 1,253,728 votes.
