Pirates reliever Evan Meek was named to his first All-Star game today. Meek’s 0.98 ERA is the best in baseball among pitchers with 40+ innings.

Very happy for him. I was thinking this morning when I woke up that the Bucs rep would be Cutch or Jones. Didn’t even consider Meek. And wouldn’t you know it, the NL took a pair of pitchers who aren’t closers with the other being former Buc Arthur Rhodes.
