Bryce Harper, like his Washington Nationals in the NL East, is making All-Star voting a runaway.
With just more than three weeks to go before this year’s game, July 11 at Marlins Park, Harper is pushing toward 3 million votes, with 2,827,330, in a balloting update announced Monday by MLB.
He and Nats teammate Daniel Murphy, who leads at second base by more than 1 million votes, the widest margin at any position, are two of three players — along with the Rockies’ Charlie Blackmon — to have 2 million votes.

Jason Heyward has a tenuous hold on the third outfield spot in the race for an NL starting position, leading teammate Ben Zobrist, in fourth place, by 85,529 votes as of Monday.

Never the star but a star in his role, Hill will give any team a floor manager and solid defender at point guard. He has shot over 40 percent on 3-pointers the past two seasons, but he won’t take over possessions. He’ll make sure the stars get touches.
At age 31, Hill likely doesn’t have many super-productive years left. He should age nicely in the right lineup, though, and he will not disrupt the locker room chemistry.
Where Hill lands could depend on how the point-guard situations shake out in free agency. Only speculation, but a Spurs reunion would be a nice way for Hill to finish his career.
