Reds 5, Nationals 2 - Johnny Cueto out-aces Max Scherzer

He aced. He out-aced. He, folks, is an ace among aces. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto came a triple away from hitting for the cycle on Tuesday, and he did all of his damage against former Cy Young Award winner and $200+ million man Max Scherzer.  Votto dingered, doubled, singled, drove in three runs on the evening, and the Cincinnati Reds 1B looked as locked in as he's been in nearly a month.  Apparently, he tweaked his swing a bit after video sessions and batting practice uncovered something amiss in this afternoon, and that was enough to have him center...

How Bruce Bochy filled out his All-Star roster (without Clayton Kershaw)

Bruce Bochy not only left off the reigning MVP and three-time Cy Young Award winner, he left off the face of the Dodgers. Clayton Kershaw is taking the high road on his All-Star omission, saying, I’m fine with Boch. Bochy chose nine players after the fans voted for eight starters and the players voted for 16 backups and pitchers. Kershaw, who could still get the final roster spot in an online fan vote, isn’t having a great year by Kershaw standards. Bochy took pitchers A.J. Burnett of the Pirates and Michael Wacha of the Cardinals. Along with two Dodgers, Adrian Gonzalez and Yasmani...

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."
