Harvey became the fourth pitcher in club history to make the All-Star team in his first full season in the majors.

Manager Terry Collins plans to start reducing Harvey’s workload and even having miss another turn in the rotation once the season resumes. “He’s going to get skipped again in the second half,” Collins said yesterday. “There are going to be games where he’s going to have his ‘A’ game.

TOC midseason awards: NL Cy Young

It's interesting that the award has come down to these two pitchers, despite neither of them leading the National League in fWAR. But Kershaw leads baseball in ERA, and Harvey is fourth in the majors while leading the National League in strikeout rate, so it at least makes sense that...

AL Defeats NL 3-0 In Mid-Summer Classic Amid Some Memorable Moments

Well the 2013 All-Star Game has come to a close as the American League defeated the National League by the score of 3-0. It was the lowest-scoring All-Star Game since 1990, when the AL earned a 2-0 victory. I loved the Opening Ceremonies and it was great to see Carlos Beltran and Mariano Rivera get some nice ovations, but not nearly as loud and boisterous as the ovations for the...
