Yasiel Puig takes the lead in NL All-Star voting

20 Comments

Andrew McCutchen may play the game the right way, but voters so far want to see Yasiel Puig. The reigning MVP is down to fourth in the outfield voting which kinda stinks because McCutchen is awesome, but with democracy you take the good with the bad and having Puig in a starting slot is good. Charlie Blackmon is a lot of fun this year, but let’s swap him out for Cutch and then everyone’s happy, yes?

In other news, Ryan Braun took a big tumble, so all pearl-clutching energy can be focused on the American League for now.

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in fourth place.
