UPDATE: It seems I was reading that tweet wrong. Apparently the data MLB is tweeting there is that Lucroy has merely gotten 24% more votes than Molina in the last 24 hours, not that he has passed him overall. Alas. Stand down, Cardinals Nation. Your guy is still probably going to start the All-Star Game.

11:33 AM: The last official NL All-Star voting update had Yadier Molina ahead of Jonathan Lucroy by around 400,000 votes. But in this unofficial update, the script has been flipped:

#NL catcher: @JLucroy20 over @Yadimolina04 (+24%) #ASG

— MLB (@MLB) July 3, 2014

Which, given that Lucroy has basically put up an MVP season this year is definitely a cool thing. Cardinals fans may hate it -- oh, God, I expect them to be vocal and humorless about hating it -- but production matters at some point.

Or, was it the negative ads? Because those work in politics, so why not other forms of voting?
