Voting will take place between now and June 29. You can vote up to five times a day.

On Tuesday, MLB released the newest polls, showing all nine Astros on the ballot were at the top of the list.

Carlos Correa moved to the top of the shortstops list surpassing Cleveland Indians shortstop Franciso Lindor.

George Springer jumped from seventh to third among outfielders on the ballot, surpassing Micheal Brantley (CLE), Mookie Betts (BOS), Avisail Garcia (CWS) and Andrew Benintendi (BOS).

Jose Altuve gained the lead over Starlin Castro (NYY) to 543,633 votes for the top spot among second basemen.

The MLB has transformed the whole voting process into a sponsored, online-only thing that features the sponsor's name more prominently than the worthy players for the game.

There is no initiative to ensure the current best players in the game get in, only the biggest crowd draws. As the fourth largest city in the U.S., there should be plenty of votes for the deserving Astros.
