    I never want a Reds pitcher in the All-Star game. Much rather have them go fishing.

    They should be cryogenically frozen in between starts and over the entire offseason.

    I realize that, and it's my fault for not making myself clear. I didn't mean just the All-Star Game; I meant in general. They (announcers, beat writers) always talk up a pitcher's good record (or bad record). There are so many variables that go into a win and/or a loss, that I just don't get why it holds so much weight in anyone's mind when evaluating a pitcher's worth.

    Draw your own conclusions here... but people never vote for Jay Bruce in this.
