The Giants (57-33) enter the All-Star break with the best record in baseball and four players headed to the Mid-Summer Classic. Johnny Cueto will start the game, with Posey behind the plate and Brandon Belt and Madison Bumgarner in the home dugout. Brandon Crawford, who is second in fWAR in the N.L., was arguably the league’s biggest snub.
Fueled by excellent offense from Belt, Posey, and Crawford and the two-headed monster in the starting rotation in Bumgarner and Cueto, San Francisco had an historically great first half and they currently sit in first place in the N.L. West by 6.5 games over of the L.A. Dodgers.
