It's not too late to start a #VoteGreinke social media campaign in time for Tuesday's All-Star Game in New York, is it?
Considering that Saturday's two-hit, 1-0 victory against Colorado pushed Zack Greinke's season mark to 8-2, lowered his ERA to 3.49, and left him unbeaten in seven home starts despite a stint on the disabled list with a broken left collarbone, why not?

The Dodgers' 17th win in their past 21 games, and Greinke's career victory No. 99, must add up to something of substance as the ceremonial first half of the season comes to a close after today's contests.

A slight adjustment in his delivery prescribed by pitching coach Rick Honeycutt had a lot to do with Greinke retiring the first 13 batters Saturday, not allowing one outfield putout, and registering nine strikeouts - all coming from the fifth inning on.

"It's been something he's been trying to get me to do all year, throw more straight-on toward the plate, and if only I just listened earlier ..." Greinke said after his 110-pitch performance - 80 for strikes - that ended in a tidy two hours and 17 minutes.

Fourteen outs came on infield grounders. Only two balls hit in the air were caught by third baseman Juan Uribe.

Until Todd Helton sliced a single into left-center field with one out in the fifth, Greinke showed no signs of even being figured out. The only other hit off the Rockies' bats came when No. 8 hitter Jonathan Herrera dragged a bunt toward second base that Mark Ellis couldn't shovel to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez in time to lead off the sixth.
