As it stands today, things are looking good for one New York club in terms of having representation at this year's All-Star Game, while the same cannot be said about the other.

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez and first baseman Luke Voit both currently lead their respective positions in All-Star voting.

Sanchez has a significant lead among the American League catchers, with almost 800,000 more votes than Chicago's James McCann, who currently sits in second place.

Voit's lead is not nearly as large, as the 28-year-old has just 110,000 more votes than Minnesota's C.J. Cron in second. 

In addition, DJ LeMahieu currently ranks third among AL second basemen in voting, while Gio Urshela sits in second among AL third basemen and Gleyber Torres is in third among AL shortstops.

Things are not looking nearly as promising for the Mets, who currently don't have a single player within the top 4 of voting at any position.

Pete Alonso has collected the most votes among Mets players with 319,256, yet ranks fifth in voting among National League first basemen.

The Met with the second-most votes is outfielder Jeff McNeil, who ranks 20th among NL outfielders with only 205,542 votes.

In an effort to garner more votes, Alonso, McNeil and the Mets put together a hilarious video, re-enacting a scene from the movie Step Brothers

Voting in "The Primary" round of All-Star voting continues until 4pm on Friday, June 21. The top three vote-getters at each position, including nine outfielders, per league will move on to "The Starters Election," which begins at noon on Wednesday, June 26.

The 2019 MLB All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday, July 9 in Cleveland.
