When the first voting tallies for the 2015 All-Star Game were released last week, the Chicago Cubs were fairly well represented, with three players in second place at their position, and another in third.
The second update was just released, and the Cubs have lost some ground:

Anthony Rizzo has fallen behind Paul Goldschmidt in addition to Adrian Gonzalez, Starlin Castro has slipped (that one is fair), and Miguel Montero’s distance from first has increased substantially. Only Kris Bryant held serve, but even in so doing, is still way behind Matt Carpenter.
The blame, of course, falls squarely upon you, Cubs fans. Since the voting for this thing is a pure exercise of fan base power – and a silly one at that – the Cubs lacking a starter in this year’s All-Star Game is probably going to fall squarely upon your shoulders. How will you sleep?
If you’re looking for a ballot, here it is.
