Adam Wainwright has been named starting pitcher for the National League All-Star team.
Personally, I would of picked Clayton Kershaw but when you're manager makes the decisions, there really is no fighting it. It isn't like Wainwright isn't deserving with his 1.83 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, and 115/27 K/BB ratio in 138 innings this season but just Kershaw has been outstanding and with a no-hitter under his belt. Felix Hernandez has been named the American League starter. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
