MIAMI -- The numbers make the argument.
Casey McGehee paces National League third basemen in RBIs (48), batting average (.309), on-base percentage (.374) and fielding percentage (.981).
What the Marlins' third baseman lacks is votes to represent the NL in the All-Star Game.
McGehee and right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, fourth on the latest list, are the position players who have made the strongest cases to represent Miami.
Stanton leads the NL in homers (21) and RBIs (60), but is not currently among the top three vote-getters for starting spots.
