2012 First Half Review: The Starters

Since there’s no baseball today or tomorrow, I figure I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a stab at a first half review. For the sake of simplicity, I’ll divide it into three segments: the starters, the offense, and the bullpen. Without further ado… Matt Cain Oh, Matt Cain. Where to begin? Right as the offseason was drawing to a close, the Giants signed Cain to a rather massive...

Cain vs. Verlander: Best of their era?

Tony La Russa doesn't concern himself with storylines. If he did, he would have chosen New York Mets' knuckleballing sensation R.A. Dickey to start the All-Star Game. Instead, La Russa picked San Francisco's Matt Cain as the National League starter and created a different theme to the pitching matchup for tonight's All-Star Game (MLB on FOX, 7:30 p.m. ET). The subplot...

Matt Cain to Start Over R.A. Rickey in All-Star Game While Justin Verlander Gets American League Nod

The knuckleball will have to come on in relief. Matt Cain has been picked by Tony La Russa to start the All-Star Game for the National League, John Harper of the New York Daily News reports. That means knuckleball sensation R.A. Dickey won't be leading the team despite going 12-1 with a 2.40 ERA and 123 strikeouts over the first half of the season for the Mets. Source says Dickey...

Matt Cain, Not R.A. Dickey, Will Start All-Star Game

It must be great to be a San Francisco Giants fan. Not only did a late push of fan votes elect three starting position players (Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval and Melky Cabrera) to the NL lineup, but now the Giants will also have Matt Cain as the starting pitcher. John Harper of the New York Daily News tweeted at 9:23 a.m. that “Source says Dickey is not starting All-Star Game....

Look At Me, I'm A Genius

Here's what bothers me about R.A. Dickey not starting the All-Star game (other than the fact that he deserved it): This isn't about Matt Cain not deserving the start on his own merits, though Dickey bested Cain in every single category except walks (24-26 for Cain).This is about Tony La Russa, once again, acting like he's smarter than the rest of the world by finding...

Mets ace gets shafted, LaRussa picks Cain over Dickey to start All Star Game

New York Mets fans were waiting patiently to find out if their ace, RA Dickey would be starting the All Star Game tomorrow night.  Instead, Tony LaRussa, the National League Manager, gave them a swift kick in the junk.  According to WFAN, Tony LaRussa will name Giants pitcher Matt Cain as the National League starting pitcher.  Cain did throw a perfect game earlier this season...

Carlos Ruiz to Catch Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey in All-Star Game; Matt Cain to Start for N.L.

Who is the better catcher, Buster Posey or Carlos Ruiz?  While the voters may have said Posey, National League manager Tony La Russa thinks that Ruiz is best suited to handle the most difficult catching challege of the day: New York Mets pitcher and knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Today, Tony La Russa said he will have Chooch warm up with Dickey and they can then enter the game together...

SF Giants Rumors: 2012 Giants All Star Highlights

The San Francisco Giants dominated the 2012 All Star Game. The fans obviously knew what these guys could do by voting them in the starting lineup. Okay I’m joking about the ballot stuffing.
