Glaus still in running for All-Star spot
Slugger is only D-Backs player in top five at his position
By Dan Blank / MLB.com
Glaus, who belted a walk-off home run against Kansas City on Friday, stands in fourth place among National League third basemen.
Arizona's home run leader with 14, Glaus trails St. Louis' Scott Rolen, Chicago's Aramis Ramirez and Atlanta's Chipper Jones. Rolen and Jones are currently on the 15-day disabled list.
Glaus is not the only Diamondback worthy of consideration to start the All-Star Game. Second baseman Craig Counsell has been a fine leadoff hitter for Arizona, posting a .402 on-base percentage while playing stellar defense. Jeff Kent of the Dodgers is the leading vote-getter at second base with the Cardinals' Mark Grudzielanek second.
After a solid homestand, left fielder Luis Gonzalez is batting .307 and leads the team with 41 RBIs. As voting currently stands, Carlos Beltran, Jim Edmonds and Bobby Abreu would be the National League's starting outfielders.
Diamondbacks fans can make their voices heard by casting their votes for starters up to 25 times with the Ameriquest 2005 All-Star Online Ballot. Online balloting ends at 9:59 p.m. MT on June 30.
Arizona fans can vote at Bank One Ballpark through June 26.
