With a week's worth of balloting to go, Troy Glaus seems to have solidified his lead over Oakland's Eric Chavez for the starting third-baseman's job on the AL All-Star team. Glaus now leads 408,739 to 314,081, the closest margin of any leader in the AL, but still pretty comfortable.

That's nice and all, but Glaus is also in a fairly nasty little slump that dates back to June 6. During that time, he's 4 for 42, with one home run. I'd swap the All-Star Team selection for a few more hits any day, and I'm guessing that so would Glaus.
