Stars born?

Tomorrow night is when most baseball fans will tune in to see the sport's "stars."

Monday, however, may be when most people first remember seeing Alex Rios and Matt Holliday. All of us here at Talkin' Baseball ask that you don't forget them.

Holliday and Rios play on teams (Colorado, Toronto) that get slim to no national media attention. Given those situations, players have to take advantage of whatever opportunity presents itself.

Both did so Monday night, perhaps none moreso than Rios. His 12-homer binge in the second round was one of the night's highlights and showed he has more than overcome a nasty injury that cost him a large portion of last season.

Same goes for Holliday, who is fast becoming more than just the son of a successful college coach (former Oklahoma State coach Tom Holliday).
