Perhaps the best "human interest" story in baseball this season:


Ryan Vogelsong started the season riding buses in the minors, hoping to get a chance to pitch in the majors for the first time since 2006.

The San Francisco Giants gave him a shot when Barry Zito got hurt and the 33-year-old Vogelsong made the most of the opportunity, becoming an All-Star.

Cool story

Vogelsong isn't one of the top 20 pitchers in the NL
