Johnny Cueto and his 9-4 record and 2.26 ERA did not make the team. Neither did Brandon Phillips (though he has less of a beef among second basemen about missing the team than Arizona’s Aaron Hill, in my opinion) or Willie Harris.
Our old frenemy Tony LaRussa, of course, is the National League manager. Dusty Baker thinks LaRussa is up to his old tricks:
Baker blames Phillips, Cueto snub on the fight with St. Louis. “I’m a little upset this morning.” #reds
