Mets Disrespected by MLB All-Star Voting Results
Phase 1 of the 2022 MLB All-Star Game's voting is well underway. Although there's still plenty of time to see which players will advance to Phase 2 of the process, several fanbases aren't exactly happy with how the early results are shaping up, especially if they happen to be New York Mets fans.
2022 MLB All-Star Game Voting
As it stands, the current voting results are nothing but disrespectful to the Mets. Despite them having been the top team in the NL since the beginning of the 2022 season, the club doesn't have a single player projected to be a starter.
First baseman Pete Alonso leads the National League with 19 home runs while also tallying an MLB-leading 64 RBIs, but trails the St. Louis Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt by nearly 330,000 votes for the starting spot.
Poor play over the last two months has led to Francisco Lindor landing in at the No. 3 spot when it comes to shortstops. He trails Los Angeles Dodgers SS Trea Turner by nearly 300,000 votes, which could also be too big of an obstacle to overcome.
Meanwhile, some fans might be shocked that Starling Marte doesn't have enough votes to claim a starting outfielder spot. While there's likely no chance he catches either Mookie Betts (1.4 million votes) or Ronald Acuña Jr. (1.3 million), Marte is only around 161,000 votes behind Joc Pederson for the final spot.
The good news for Mets fans is that they have plenty of time to vote for their team favorites. The 2022 MLB All-Star Game's Phase 1 voting will continue until Thursday, June 30 at 2 p.m. ET.
