According to Dallas Keuchel, he's much better at video games than Lance McCullers Jr.

There's no denying the fact that Dallas Keuchel is the leader of the Astros' pitching staff. The 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner is in Miami this week for his second All-Star Game, after all, following a ridiculous 9-0, 1.67 ERA start to his season. 
But he wasn't the only Houston hurler spotted at the Midsummer Classic, as right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. rode a 7-2 record and 3.05 ERA to his first All-Star selection. The two may be teammates and ultimately play for the same goal, but that doesn't mean they aren't also fierce competitors -- when it comes to off-field activities. 
Asked by the Cespedes Family BBQ at All-Star Media Day (and as seen in the video atop this post), Keuchel also considers himself a significantly better video game player than McCullers. However, McCullers offers up a jab of his own -- specifically that he's better on the basketball court than Keuchel, adding, "Don't tell him I said that."
