    NL Starter for All Star Game is....

    not Volquez! Apparently Clint Hurdle is going to select Ben Sheets to start the game tomorrow night thanks to all of his top guys pitching this past weekend (Webb and Lincecum yesterday, Volquez Saturday). I'm kind of glad it's not Edinson because this means he should only pitch one inning somewhere later during the game and it shouldn't throw him off too much.

    Quote:
    Because Hurdle said he would give precedence to pitchers selected to the All-Star Game via the players' ballot, his choice came down to Sheets and Cincinnati's Edinson Volquez. Asked about his thinking last week, Hurdle referred to Sheets as, "the known," and Volquez as, "the fireball."

    Reds manager Dusty Baker spoke on the telephone with Hurdle after Volquez threw 114 pitches against the Brewers on Saturday, and it was decided that someone else would start.

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
