Scherzer is now 13-0, and the Tigers are 7-2 against the Tribe so far, with their 7-0 victory on Friday.

And in other fun news, we're going to next Sunday's game vs. Texas, and looks like Verlander is scheduled to pitch. Hopefully he's corrected his pitching issues. If Thursday's game was any indication, looks like we'll see the old Justin.

Sort of the same thing I was saying about Miguel Cabrera a couple of days ago...can you
imagine if he played at Wrigley Field for half his games? Good God.

Oh, and the Dodgers are decidedly starting to not suck now...Puig (and getting healthy) seems to
have lit a fire in their tails.

Puig should NOT be in the All-Star Game. He's awesome, but he's only played 1 month.

While I tend to agree, I do think there's some validity to the argument of "Batting .436 after a full month perhaps warrants it". I mean...that really is astounding.

It's astounding for the moment, but it's only been a month. The league will sort him out and that batting average won't likely remain above 400. In fact Puig went 0-4 at the plate last night, all punchouts. Of course he's also a very good defensive player and I hope his career is a long one and just warming up.

Of a season that's only been two months long, I would point out. While that is a significant difference (double the at-bats), it also shows that he has done it for a significant length of time.

He is a good defensive player. In fact, I think the only thing he needs SERIOUS work on is baserunning. He's got the speed for that too, though, once he can get it figured out.

Puig has had perhaps the greatest first month in baseball ever. Obviously he'll normalize but still...this is like DiMaggio status.

I don't understand the "he's only played for a month" argument. He's arguably the hottest player in baseball right now and factually the most exciting. Since Kershaw is the only Dodger in the All-Star game you'd probably get a million+ more viewers if you stuck Puig in the starting lineup.

This is a no contest from a marketing perspective which baseball needs to consider seeing how much attendance is down this year.

I don't have a problem with Puig being in. I think it's warranted given how much he did in that month. One note about it is that the season is 3 months old, not 2.

Anyway, the important thing to talk about is that the Cardinals only got 5 people on the All Star Team. No Rosenthal or Mujica? Ridiculous. Both are beasts.

by the Rangers last month in St. Louis.

I'm pretty sure that if he made the roster, about 80% of the league is injured.
