When you are the best pitcher in baseball, deductive reasoning says you are also the best pitcher in the National League. When you are the best pitcher in the National League, you should start the All-Star Game.
Managers Terry Collins of the Mets and Ron Roenicke of the Brewers will serve as NL coaches for the All-Star game and managers Ned Yost of the Royals and Bob Melvin of the A’s will coach on the AL side.
David Wright was ready to take one for the team. Terry Collins was not going to let that happen.
Ron Roenicke showed he can win as a fill-in manager. Now he gets a chance to do it every day.
