Raul, JRoll take All-Star lead

 <br />
Lenny Ignelzi

Rauuuuul, who deserves it, and JRoll, who doesn't, have taken the lead in the latest fan balloting for this summer's All-Star game in St. Louis.

Here are the numbers, from Major League Baseball:

About this blog
Rich Hofmann arrived at the Daily News in 1980 for a job whose status was officially designated as "full-time, temporary." A senior at Penn at the time, he was hired to fill in on the copy desk during a staff illness. The notion of him covering the Eagles or being a columnist did not exist in anyone's imagination. It was supposed to be six weeks and out, but he never left. It is only one of the reasons why so many people have concerns about him as a potential house guest. Rich has blogged the postseasons of the Flyers and Eagles. E-mail Rich at Reach Rich at
