It's Yankee against Yankee in the last stages of Major League Baseball All-Star voting! Derek Jeter and Hideki Matsui are vying for the final position on the American League's All Star team. Jeter and Matsui are up against Scott Podsednik of the Chicago White Sox, Torii Hunter from the Minnesota Twins, and Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays; MLB.com says Jeter is leading Podsednik after one day of voting. You can vote right here as many times as you want, as long as you make sure to type in the correct validation key.
Already representing the NY area are Alex Rodriguez, Mariano Rivera and Gary Sheffield of the Yankees and Mike Piazza, Carlos "I Don't Wanna Run!" Beltran, and Pedro Martinez from the Mets. It's almost the first time in years that Joe Torre hasn't coached the AL team - this year it's going the Red Sox's Terry Francona. Things Gothamist can't believe: Piazza made the starters' list that Beltran was voted ahead of Cliff Floyd.
