Fairly certain despite Bundy coming of TJS and not looking too good so far in the minors that they wouldn't trade him. Which probably figures because I'm starting to worry he'll end being one of the few pitchers that can't pitch after the surgery.

Should just be hoping he passes all the "tests" stays healthy, and not worry about how he looks this season. You can be sure he's going to be on an innings and pitch limit next year too.

As a baseball fan, not happy about the bundy injury last year in the same vain of this year's Jose Fernandez injury. Just a shitty thing for baseball.

Exactly why is Francisco Cervelli on the roster instead of J.R. Murphy?

Murphy wouldn't have made that bad throw.

Yankees acquire Brandon McCarthy from the Diamondbacks for Vidal Nuno.

McCarthy has never really regained his form since taking a liner to the head a couple years ago and requiring surgery.

Regardless he's probably still loving life. Fairly good looking, rich, great sense of humor, and a really hot wife who also has a great sense of humor. Wish I was him.

Ooof. Fonsie got DFA'd to make room for McCarthy.

Unless someone grabs him, this may be the end. Unless he's content with a stint in AAA.

Corey Black has been ok in AA. May be a decent bullpen arm at some point.

AL sending in some solid pitchers. Might be what makes the difference this All-Star game. Shocked that Betances made the team. Only one of the Yankee Killer B's to make something of himself.

Starting lineup ain't that great. Twinkies only sending Suzuki and Perkins to the game. That's gotta be a kick in the balls for being the host city and a fan.

Not really. If the game wasn't in Minnesota they'd probably have only gotten one guy in. The host city usually gets at least 2 reps even if the team is shit (see: Mets in 2013)

If Stanton had beaten out Gomez, then all 16 starting position players would have been from different teams. Odd.

Anyway, I'm really glad Murphy made it in. Easily the most deserving Mets candidate. Really, with the exception of Jon Niese he's probably the ONLY deserving candidate. Glad to see him get the recognition although there's a very good chance he doesn't even get in the game since he's pretty much the 3rd string 2B.

The biggest snub I can see is Huston Street not being the lone Padres rep...but when the players voted in Chapman he pretty much got screwed as Matheny was dead-set on taking Watson and Neshek.

Figured Dozier might have snuck in with the fair year he's having.

But Joe Mauer. Man, how the mighty have fallen. Used to be guaranteed to be the catcher for the AL.

King Felix is pretty much a lock to be the AL starting pitcher. Tanaka is in line to start the Sunday before and therefore wouldn't be able to play.

The NL starter probably has to be Kershaw but Kershaw and Wainwright going 2 innings each to start would be a helluva way to cover 4 innings. Cueto is another guy lined up to start the Sunday before so he'd be a no-go.

At least its better than when KC hosted it. All they got was the DH spot I believe.

Jays got a steal in Reimold. Always liked him save for being made of glass. At this point he probably puts together 1 solid season where he stays on the field for 125 games. Dunno when that will be though.

He was pretty close to being forced out of baseball due to injuries so I'm fairly confident he won't suddenly not be plagued by injuries.

Not really. The O's didn't have a spot for him and even if they did, it would have probably ended with him getting hurt again. Good for him if he can keep healthy, it does suck he ended up in the division though.

They may have just taken the best deal available. That, and with all the middle infield depth they have, they may be able to move Castro for some pitching.

Padres GM search continues, as Kim Ng has been getting quite the pub here recently. She does seem incredibly qualified, much the way Jed was very much qualified when he interviewed/took the job.

Of the current list of candidates, I like the Marlins' Beinfest, Logan White of the Dodgers, and Ng. My two favorite candidates, Jason McLeod and David Forst have bowed out of contention, so those are the three the Padres are left with that I consider ideal hires, for a number of reasons.

I think Ng is hungry. Regardless that she's a woman and the hire would be shattering the current glass ceiling, she has an amazing track record, is clearly hungry for the job considering she's been interviewed multiple times (including by the Padres), and could be the right mind for the job.

That Dodgers/Tigers game last night was a lot of fun. JV got torched early for a 5-spot in the first inning, then it was all Detroit. 20 hits last night, no HRs. No VMart either. Fuckin' JD Martinez is on fire right now.
