Cubs have two All-Stars?
That doesn't seem possible
The way they're playing
The weekend sweep of the Astros aside, we all know this is a terrible season likely to end with more than 100 losses.
But there is a (very thin) silver lining to the cloud that is 2012 Cubs baseball. Youngster Starlin Casto and journeyman Brian LaHair were named as reserves for the All-Star game next week in Kansas City.
There's an argument to be made for Castro to start. But I think the general malaise of Cubs fans (the frequency of my blog posts is just one example) meant that fewer Cubs fans were voting.
