Re: PIrates All-Stars announced 


I'm pretty happy about Locke and Alvarez making it. Both very deserving. I think Pedro could put up a show at the HR derby, but I also hope it doesnt effect his swing for the 2nd half.

I also hope Grilli doesn't pitch, so he gets his rest and gets his legs back. If he does pitch, I hope he's lights out and gets that focus/adrenaline back for the 2nd half push.

Never saw Locke going to the All Star game before the season, let alone a midpoint Cy Young Candidate. Kudos to those that did. Pedro has been exceptional for 2 months. Truly exceptional. Cutch has been the best overall player on the roster and just gets it done everyday. Grilli has been dynamite for most of the season. I think Marte and Martin were also very deserving, but you can't take everyone. Great time to be a Pirate fan.

Agree on all players, and about it being a good time to be a Bucs fan.

Melancon deserved it as much as any other Pirate. Especially compared to someone like Chapman.

Would have been nice to see Liriano make it as well.

Kind of crazy that the Pirates could of had 6-7 make it.

Nice job. When was the last time the Pirates had 4 All-stars?

Yeah hopefully Martin gets the nod if Molina is unable to go.  Also, Bryce Harper getting voted in really hurt Marte's chances.  I hope he finds his way onto the roster as well, he deserves it, he has been the best leadoff man in baseball.

The best thing about this year is not wondering "how are we gonna score runs if they pitch around Cutch?"

Now all we need is Pedro in the Home Run Derby.

I can see Cutch congratulating Pedro after he wins the derby now...

Indianapolis Indians All Stars:  Indians closer Vic Black, shortstop Josh Harrison, starting southpaw Kris Johnson and catcher Tony Sanchez have all been named to the 2013 International League Midseason All-Star team. The Tribe's four selections are the most among any team in the IL and the most for the Indians since 2005. 

What do you know?  We have a AAA all star shortstop...

hahaha good catch Sangue.  Except he isn't playing there.  It was Mercers, then D'Arnaud's.  But, Harrison did get a lot of time there in the middle.

Interesting that Pedro Alvarez was voted by the players to be on the all star team.  How many players is the "players vote" responsible for?

Locke is scheduled to pitch the last game before the All Star break.

I guess this would make it very unlikely he will pitch in the All Star game.

Yeah, would be cool if Liriano or Melancon took his spot.
