Not every baseball fan in the country knows that Omar Infante had just one hit last week. But most are aware that Infante is having a tough second season with the Royals.

So there was a lot of disgust and anger when the latest All-Star Game vote totals were released on Monday and Infante had passed Houston’s Jose Altuve for first place among AL second basemen.
