The Morning Edition (June 21, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • Wright homers twice, but the Mets lose Niese in win against the Braves
  • Longoria’s 2 HR lift the Rays over the Yanks
  • Zimmermann dominates the Rockies, but Oswalt gets 11 K of his own as Nats win 5-1
  • Pena walks off on the Crew in 10
  • Another Puig HR

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Strasburg looks to build on a solid first start back (7p Eastern)
  • Cole goes to LA to face Weaver (10p Eastern)
  • Clayton Kershaw faces similarly named Clayton Richard (10p Eastern)
  • Colon and Iwakuma (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Who would you honor with the NL All-Star start?

There are a number of good candidates depending on what statistics you value:

WAR: 

Wainwright, Harvey, Lee, and Kershaw

FIP:

Harvey, Wainwright, Miller, Kershaw, Lee

ERA:

Kershaw, Locke (!), Miller, Harvey, Corbin, Wainwright, Zimmermann

K/9:

Miller, Burnett, Samardjiza, Harvey, Lynn

Wins (LOL!):

Wainwright, Lee, Corbin, Zimmermann, Lynn, and Marquis

Wainwright is probably having the best season, but I’d be completely happy with Harvey given that the game is at Citi Field and he’s one of the game’s brightest young stars. Kershaw, Lee, and Miller are all very deserving as well. Right now, I’d go with Waino or Harvey. You?
