David Ortiz leads all candidates to be the designated hitter at July 16th's All-Star Game at Citi Field in Flushing Meadows. Dustin Pedroia is running in third position for the second base spot, and Mike Napoli also trails two others to start at first base. If he continues to lead the balloting, this would be Big Papi's ninth All-Star appearance. In 39 games this year, Ortiz is hitting .333, with 10 HRs and 36 RBIs. He has a .405 OBP and an OPS of 1.023. You can still vote on-line HERE.
