RA Dickey Will Not Start the All-Star Game. Matt Cain Will.

RA Dickey, baseball’s best pitching story through the first half of the season, will not start the All-Star game. That honor will go to San Francisco Giants starter Matt Cain.

Dickey is having an incredible season – the 37-year-old knuckleballer is 12-1 with a 2.40 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and opposing hitters are batting just .203 against him. This is dominance: 123 strikeouts vs. 26 walks say.

Cain’s having a strong season, too – 9-3, 2.62 ERA, and he tossed a perfect game, too.
