His recent hot streak most likely is the factor behind this, but Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira now leads all AL first baseman in votes in the most recent standings released by Major League Baseball.  Derek Jeter still leads all shortstops.  A-Rod has moved up to second amongst 3B – he most likely has no shot of passing Evan Longoria of the Rays, who leads all players with 1,560,358.  Jeter is second with 1,511,418.
