I'm now prepared to say RA Dickey should be the starting pitcher for the National League for the All-Star Game. Another brilliant performance last night, 3 Hits over 8 innings with 10 strike out, 1 walk and no runs. He's the first pitcher to 12 wins, probably only one more start before the ASG. So unless something disasterous happens, he should be the starting pitcher.
Wins are an absolutely worthless statistic for a pitcher, but Dickey deserves some consideration for the start, since his peripherals have been pretty great thus far. Brandon Beachy and Madison Bumgarner have to be in the mix, though, too.
