Steve Delabar Comes With Awesome Story, But 2013 AL Final Vote Just Adds to MLB’s All-Star Fiasco

Steve Delabar is the kind of guy you root for. His whole story is awesome, and it’s always cool to see an underdog get recognized for his success. But let’s be real here. Is he really an All-Star? Sentimental stuff aside, no. Delabar is having a tremendous season, but it’s outlandish to think that he should be playing alongside some of baseball’s best at this year’s Midsummer...

Cleveland Indians reliever Cody Allen somehow didn’t get a laugh out of a swing that Rajai Davis of the Blue Jays made on Thursday, and we aren’t sure why.
