In other news, Brandon Phillips and Joey Votto lead the Reds in All-Star votes.

Red Hot Mama: All-Star *yawn* voting

Amanda looks into the top All-Star candidates from the Reds. Not surprisingly, Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips lead the way for Cincinnati. MLB has limited the availability of the voting data by only announcing regular updates on the national Saturday and Sunday broadcasts.

Madson is now curious whether human growth hormone could help him return to the game, but MLB currently bans the substance.

Does everyone else have the feeling that we're watching a Hall of Fame career slip a little further away from Tulowitzki with each new injury? He's one of the best players in baseball while healthy, but he has the durability of Glass Joe.
