All-Star Game just the beginning for Brock Holt

Brock Holt has earned his spot in the 2015 All-Star Game. But once that's over, he'll have a chance to establish himself as part of the foundation of the Red Sox. Let's rewind two full years. It's July 7, 2013. The Red Sox are sitting at 54-36, 90 games into a campaign that will ultimately see them win their third World Series in ten years. "I've got bad news," I tell you, "it's going to get rough after 2013. In two years, the Red Sox will only have one All-Star*, but he's already with the team now."

Cincinnati Reds links - Vote Johnny Cueto into the All Star Game

Tuesday links! Last night we learned that Cincinnati Reds ace Johnny Cueto did not make the National League All Star team as configured by San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy.  However, Cueto is among the five finalists to make the team via one last round of fan voting, and he needs your help to make the squad.  Look, the All Star Game is kinda sorta an exhibition blended with a cup of salt and a dash of real baseball, but all signs point to Cueto being on a different team in less than a month, and each and every chance fans get to see him don a Reds uniform is one most all of us...
