On the same wavelength...

Looks like Baggarly agrees with Garrett and me on the likelihood that Matt Cain will be (one of?) the Giant(s) at the All-Star Game.

From Baggarly:

"Cain is 6-1 and his 2.31 ERA ranks third in the National League. Improved run support helps to explain the jump in victories. But Cain also has been close to unhittable with runners in scoring position.

He has held opponents to a .109 average (5 for 46) with runners in scoring position. With two out, hitters are 1 for 24 against him in those situations."

Yes, he doesn't have the glamour stat of strikeouts, as Jack's pointed out, but the others are a pretty strong argument.

(Basically I do not want to talk about tonight's game. Can you blame me?)
