Two NL East teams are bringing an All-Star off the disabled list Tuesday.

The Phillies have been without Shane Victorino since July 3, when he spraind his thumb. After a short rehab assignment, in which he felt "embarrassed" over a small gaffe, Victorino will re-join the Phillies lineup against the Cubs Tuesday night. Victorino brings multiple dimensions back to the Phillies, as he's a three-time Gold Glove center fielder who is hitting .303 with 14 doubles, nine triples, nine home runs, 53 runs and 13 steals. Earlier this month, he won the "Final Vote" for the second time, making him a two-time All-Star and the only person to win that particular vote twice.

Jose Reyes will also re-join his ballclub's lineup Tuesday, as the Mets square off against the Cardinals. The Mets' superstar shortstop was one of the best players in all of baseball for 2011 when he was sidelined with a hamstring injury July 2. He's hitting .354 with 16 triples, 30 steals and a .927 OPS. He's in line for a huge payday this coming offseason when he hits free agency, the only question is if it will be the Mets doing the paying. The Mets also get Carlos Beltran back in the lineup after missing a few games due to a pretty bad case of the flu, so they'll have a significantly stronger lineup than last time out.

1. We are what, 8 games ahead in the WC? We aren't going to let up.
2. Overated pitching staff? Stats show us with the 4th best in baseball with the Phillies being 3rd. Don't think that's overated...

Get over yourself. Phillies are good but so are the Braves, whether you like it or not.

Victorino is a known Brave killer, his .400+ average and .700 slg% against them this year proves that. So if anything, you Braves fans should pray Shane has mercy on the Braves and their overrated pitching staff, should they even make the playoffs.

Well, the Braves run was nice while it lasted. As for Jose Reyes, can't wait to see him back in action. Phillies, Shane Victorino, may God have mercy on your souls when we meet you in the playoffs.
