Posey, Sandoval still top All-Star voting

Also, our hearts.

Buster Posey still leads the world in All-Star voting, and Pablo Sandoval is tops among third basemen in All-Star voting. This stuff means something to me because I remember reading the updates in the Chronicle and going straight to the bottom of the outfielder's section to see if Jack Clark made the top 10. Sometimes he did!

That was what it was like being a young Giants fan in the early '80s, so I don't feel bad about the voting bloc the Giants have put together. This stuff means less than something, though, because you know Bruce Bochy is going to take Ryan Theriot and Freddy Sanchez's disembodied head if he gets the chance. But pretend this is still important.

I'd trade in a Posey election to get Marco Scutaro in there. But, hey, how about both?
