  A Philly tradition: Voting early, and often NEW YORK - Phillies fans have done a fine job of stuffing the ballot boxes. Major League Baseball on Tuesday announced the first update on fan voting for the National League all stars, and five Phillies are in the lead in votes at their positions. Two more are in second place. Even Jimmy Rollins, who has played 11 games at shortstop in 2010, would be an all-star starter if the voting ended today. Voting ends July 1. Rollins, second baseman Chase Utley, third baseman Placido Polanco, and outfielders Jayson Werth and Shane Victorino all lead their respective positions.

WHAT DO YOU THINK the Phillies would have done if someone at Citizens Bank Park tried to display a banner with a racist slur against Jimmy Rollins or Bobby Abreu? Free speech, right? First Amendment and all that flag-hugging stuff? Keep the sign up? Nope, they would have taken it down. They would have found a way to defuse a potentially volatile situation and shrug off any threats of lawsuits. But when it comes to the area's gay and lesbian community, the Phillies are hypocrites.

The signs began popping up as the evening began. In Houston, Braves rightfielder Dale Murphy was a late scratch from the starting lineup of last night's game against the Astros. In Atlanta, agent Bruce Church called his wife and canceled their plans to go out to dinner, saying he had to work late at the office. In the Vet, Phillies general manager Lee Thomas was in his office with the door closed. It all came together late last night when the Phillies announced at a hastily called press conference that they had acquired two-time National League MVP Dale Murphy from the Braves for reliever Jeff Parrett.
