1) Jeter, SS
* I’ve still never seen Masahiro Tanaka pitch an inning.
I'm getting older, I have a kid now, and I'm starting to lose my handle on who a lot of the younger stars are--most of these guys I know only by their statistics. I like to have at least some sort of image in my head when I read my baseball stuff.
For all the talk that the ASG is outmoded now that MLB.TV exists, and interleague is happening all the time, and there are nationally televised games on regular cable at least 5 days a week, this thread is really showing that baseball fans mostly just watch their team and may or may not know the other players in their team's league.
Booth: Joe Buck, Harold Reynolds, Tom verducci
God Bless America: Joe Nichols
but I know more about third and fourth relievers than I ever did.
The Jeter coverage tonight will be vomit-inducing.
Play fantasy baseball.
The All-Star Game is TODAY? That means the Home Run Derby was yesterday. I didn't even notice when the Home Run Derby participants were announced, and now it's over. This has thrown me for a loop.
Didn't we have like a 400-post Home Run Derby thread last year? What's happened to this site? I blame the World Cup.
Some reasons why I'm excited for the All-Star game:
* I have never seen a full Jose Abreu plate appearance.
* I have never seen a full Kyle Seager plate appearance.
* I have never seen a full Michael Brantley plate appearance, and know nothing at all about what type of player he might be.
* I know nothing about Devin Mesoraco.
*I know nothing about Charlie Blackmon.
* I’ve still never seen Masahiro Tanaka pitch an inning. Nor Alfredo Simon. Nor Julio Teheran.
[ ] Jeter does something good
As a kid, I always wondered how they'd deal with a recently-traded all-star. Color me underwhelmed.
They should have let him start. For BOTH TEAMS.
Baseball now striving hard to reach that coveted younger demographic with a pregame song by... Bob Dylan.
So, this year, instead of volunteers or soldiers, it's teachers.
WTF is this pregame song?
Man, if Rod Carew wasn't somebody you'd define as a singles hitter, then who is?
I'm gonna need to do a lot of drinking to erase the memory of that RE2PECT commercial and whatever that freaking robot cartoon was.
That's what you get for not starting Kershaw Matheny, you f*cking d*ckhead.
With the double, Jeter is now hitting .462 in the All-Star Game for his career.
