Its not out of whack to give the right-handed reliever serious consideration as an All-Star even if hes not in the glamour set of closers. Tuesday night was a bad night for LeCure and it showed how fickle the baseball gods can be. LeCure gave up a two-run home run to Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki with two...
