MLB.com’s Corey Brock reports that Padres closer Huston Street will replace teammate Tyson Ross on the National League All-Star roster. Ross started this afternoon against the Dodgers.

Street, 30, has been among the game’s best relievers, posting a 1.09 ERA with a strikeout-to-walk ratio approaching 5-to-1 while saving 24 games in 25 opportunities.

Ross, 27, entered today’s start with a 2.93 ERA and a 117/42 K/BB ratio in 122 2/3 innings across 19 starts.

    Ross’ ERA is good but not that good. It was actually 2.93 before today. He went 7 innings, 6 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, and 9 strikeouts, lowering his ERA to 2.85. Those strikeouts were probably what got Ross named to the team, since he’d only pitch one inning in the ASG.

      what? did you just wake up from a coma that started in 1967?

      2.93 is a great ERA today. Good for 11th in the league. he is 10th in the league in Ks per 9 and hits per 9.

      The reason he is there is the one player per team rule, and he is having a great season. on a better team he would be a bubble guy. He is pitching like an all star. he should be an all star.

        Dude, the original post, later changed, cited his ERA at 2.39 instead of 2.93. That’s what I meant by ‘not THAT good’. Everything’s relative, and you’re so quick with an insult, you’re no relative of mine.

    Our one All-Star that is active won’t be a Padre on Aug. 1.

      But Padres CEO Mike Dee said he doubts Street will change uniforms this year. That either means he doesn’t have a spare uniform, or he’s not being traded. I’m leaning toward the latter, or we’d have heard complaints from his teammates about the smell by now.

        Padres 2014 MVP is the equipment guy, who leads the league in UWAR (Uniforms Washed Above Replacement).
