Hopefully we will hear sometime this weekend that Andrew McCutchen has made the NL All-Star roster. McCutchen's average is hovering just below .300 with an OBP of .393 (9th NL) and 13 homers - those are all numbers that don't account for his speed (15 steals) and the Pirates enter play on Saturday a game out of first place! When was the last time that happened on the weekend prior to the All-Star Break.
