Maybe. No he’s not. Yeah, he is. I’m so confused!

It’s been quite the exciting week for Tyson Ross.  Last Wednesday, he pitched the first complete game shutout of his career in a win over the Cincinnati Reds.  Thursday, he joined Twitter.

And Sunday, he was named to his first National League All-Star team as the Padres’ lone representative.

Wait–What?  Tyson Ross?  What happened to Huston Street?  Or Seth Smith?  Why was Ross selected over either of them?  This was originally going to be what this was all about.  I was going to wow you with stats and magic.  And you would all eat it up.

Then, Monday, Ross decided he’d rather not participate in the All-Star Game in Minneapolis, announcing he will make his scheduled start for the Padres next Sunday.  Which then would rule him out to appear in the All-Star Game.

Don’t get me wrong.  I fully support naming Ross an All-Star.  Especially when you look at his numbers (except win/loss record, of course), which we’ll do in a second.  And I applaud him for thinking of his actual team first.  He just as easily could have told Bud Black to find someone else to start Sunday.

But now the question is, once again:  Who’s your All-Star?

The 2013 MLB All-Star Game has come and gone. Everth Cabrera got a free trip to New York and front row dugout seats to the festivities and game. And that’s about it.

Bruce Bochy didn’t play Cabrera last night. Why? Is it because he was holding Cabrera in reserve in case the game went extra innings? Did Bochy just forget Cabrera was there? Was it an alien conspiracy?

Brady from LobShots found proof that Cabrera was, in fact, there.

Or, at least someone wearing his jersey was…

There were some interesting theories put out over Twitter during the game. Let’s explore a few of them, shall we?
