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?

Delabar becomes first Jay to fan four in an inning

Striking out four in an inning is something a pitcher cannot do all by himself. He needs a little help. He needs a batter to swing at a ball in the dirt or over his head that misses the catcher and goes for a wild pitch that lets the batter go to first base.
