No Pirate All-Star starters….yet

The All Star fan vote totals were revealed Sunday night, and no Pirates made the cut…not even Andrew McCutchen:

Kind of a shame that nobody from the NL’s second-best team could crack the lineup, although Cutch is really the only one with a good case. It’s unfortunate that the fan-vote system dumped him behind the likes of Matt Holliday and Nori Aoki…but with Giancarlo Stanton out for the ASG, there’s a chance he could start anyway. (Holliday is out currently, but is set to return this week.)

Aoki is also out for the ASG, but injured starter’s replacements are determined by the manager (SF’s Bruce Bochy in this case), not the next-highest vote getters. You’d have to think there’s a pretty good chance Bohcy will take McCutchen considering his pedigree and the season he is having, although it’s not a sure thing. LA’s Joc Pederson and maybe Arizona’s A.J. Pollock would be the best alternatives, at least based on this year’s first half. Bochy will also need to name a DH, so if he doesn’t start in the outfield, I suppose there’s a chance Cutch could work his way into the lineup that way as well.

The starting pitcher has also not been named yet. Gerrit Cole may still have a fighting chance for that honor, but my money would be on Max Scherzer or Zack Greinke at this point (also depending on who pitches on what day leading up to the game).

The rest of the All-Star teams (before the annual parade of injury replacements) will be named on Monday night. I fully expect McCutchen, Cole, Mark Melancon, and probably A.J. Burnett to be on the list.
