Max Scherzer started the All Star Game for the American League and promptly retired Brandon Phillips, Carlos Beltran and Joey Votto in order.  However, that was far from the best thing Max did on Tuesday.  Prior to the game, Scherzer signed autographs for dozens of military personnel who were allowed on to the field. As Hardball Talk said, Scherzer stopping to sign autographs was not orchestrated in the least bit.  He and others, including Angels outfielder Mike Trout, took a few minutes each to say hello to the troops. Good stuff, Max. via Hardball Talk

Despite having to get most...
