Should Stephen Strasburg be on the N.L. All Star team? This is a very popular question among MLB fans these days. My initial thought was no, but I have switched my stance and now say yes. He has 3 starts before the All Star break and his performance between now and then will determine the outcome. The only reason for this debate is because of the Nationals keeping him in the minors to delay his free agency down the road. That is a topic for another time. In his 4 starts he has clearly demonstrated that he is right there at the top among the games best pitchers and will only get better which is a scary thought! The All Star game is no longer a meaningless game since home field advantage in the World Series is awarded to the winning league.
