From Jim Molony at, about the current ballot leaders for the NL in the All-Star game.

Should these leaders remain in first place, Fielder, 23 years old, would join Utley (28), Wright (24), Martin (24) and Reyes (24) to form the youngest National League starting infield since 1970, when St. Louis first baseman Dick Allen (28 years old at the time) teamed with Chicago second baseman Glenn Beckert (29), shortstop Don Kessinger (28), Cincinnati third baseman Tony Perez (28) and Reds catcher Johnny Bench (21) in the NL lineup at the Midsummer Classic at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati.

So....this will be the youngest NL starting infield infield that was older?

Other than HatGuy describing the White Sox season as "aswul", this is the only thing that amused me today.
