Matt Cain Will Start For National League Over R.A. Dickey

Matt Cain San Francisco Giants All-StarThe San Francisco Giants Matt Cain will start the All-Star game for the National League in Kansas City. Cain will get the nod over the New York Mets R.A. Dickey. Tony LaRussa will manage the National League squad and this decision will likely draw the ire of some baseball fans.

Dickey is having a remarkable year.

Dickey is a worthy candidate with a 12-1 record, 2.40 ERA, 123 strikeouts in 120 innings pitched and just 32 earned runs allowed. Dickey pitched back-to-back one hitters earlier this year

Cain is 9-3 record, 2.62 ERA, 118 strikeouts in 120.1 innings and only 35 earned runs. Cain pitched a perfect game earlier this year.

Making decisions like these is never easy for All-Star managers. There are only two starters for the game, and someone has to be left out. Earlier today Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers was announced as the American League starter
