Sorry we missed DOTF yesterday. Guess I was taking an All-Star break, too. Today should be easy, though.
As we mentioned earlier, Reds farmhands Joey Votto, Jeff Keppinger, and Phil Dumatrait were selected for the All-Star team. Keppinger won’t be playing, I imagine, but he probably won’t complain; he’s a major leaguer now, having been just called up to the Reds last weekend.
I’m not sure how to link to it, but on this page you can find minorleaguebaseball.com’s interview with Joey Votto.
For what it’s worth, the AA Eastern League All-Star Game also takes place tonight.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
