Anthony Rizzo falls 4th in NL All-Star Voting

Anthony+RizzoChicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo has fallen to fourth in the latest National League All-Star voting released Tuesday. Rizzo was on a 12-game hitting streak before Tuesday night’s game with a .332 batting average, 11 home runs, 35 RBIs, and ranks third in the majors with a 1.057 OPS. His on-base percentage of .449 ranks fourth. Rizzo trails Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt, Los Angeles’ Adrian Gonzalez and St. Louis’ Matt Adams. Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant remains in second place behind St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter. Catcher Miguel Montero is third and shortstop Starlin Castro fourth. The All-Star game will be played in Cincinnati on July 14th.

1st base is very competitive in the National League this season. You havetumblr_m6g9k7yrL61qary12o1_500 Goldschmidt, Gonzalez and Adams, the three ahead of Rizzo. You also have Votto and Freeman in the 1st base mix too. Goldschmidt has a batting average of .356 with 17 home runs, 50 RBIs, and a .476 on-base percentage. Gonzalez has a batting average of .308 with 11 home runs, 40 RBIs, and a .391 on-base percentage. Adams has a batting average of .243 with 4 home runs, 20 RBIs, and a .281 on-base percentage. Votto has a batting average of .296 with 14 home runs, 36 RBIs, and a .398 on-base percentage. Freeman has a .306 batting average with 12 home runs, 40 RBIs, and a .376 on-base percentage.

But, in my opinion Rizzo should at least be in second place. His numbers have been incredible and he’s the face of the Cubs. I will be pretty disappointed if he doesn’t get higher in the voting. I’ve been voting every day for him, he’s the Chicago Cub that deserves it the most. It’s a fan voting system so if you think Rizzo deserves it like I do, make sure you vote here, you can vote up to 35 times .
