Cool (albeit brief) MLB.com video here of the addition of stars to the jerseys of Votto, Phillips and Bruce.
By the way, we’ve about heard enough of the Bruce bashing. We get it, it stinks that Andrew McCutchen didn’t make the All-Star team. He’s good and a big reason why the Buccos are (temporarily) ahead of the Reds in the standings. But it’s not Bruce’s fault that McCutchen isn’t one of the five Final Vote candidates. Bruce went off in May – .342/12/33 – and the players noticed. But do we really have to make a point of including him among the “5 least deserving All-Stars,” Ken Rosenthal? (Not hyperlinking to you, baby, sorry.) Quit busting on our main man Bruce! No more Bruce abuse!
Have a pleasant 4th.
