MLB All-Star Voting Ballot Results Don't Look Good For Washington Nationals

The first round of voting results for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game is out for the National League, and shockingly, no Washington Nationals player is anywhere near getting voted in as a starter. I know, guys. Wipe that gasp off your face. It's really true.

No Nationals player was listed in the top five at his position in balloting, and no outfielders are in the top 15. Perhaps things would be different if Ryan Zimmerman was healthy, since there's no way there are five NL third basemen better than him, but he's injured. Perhaps things would be different if Jayson Werth did anything in April, but he didn't, so here we are.

So instead, we're left to dream that one day, Zimmerman will be healthy, Werth will be worth (I purposely avoided the pun) his contract, Ian Desmond and Danny Espinosa will have fulfilled their promise and Bryce Harper will be the best player in baseball. One day, right?
