Strong Mets flavor with the coaches. Ventura played there. Collins is the current manager, and Davey Johnson managed them during the 1980s.

Jason Grilli is an all star. Wow.

Who wudda thunk it, eh? He definitely deserves it though, he's been a beast since he put on a Pirates uniform. His K rate the last three seasons is unreal.

All star games that include Marco Scutaro and JJ Hardy aren't exactly compelling. The whole AL team is a big yawn.

Trout and Cabrera alone make that team exciting. I think we've begun another golden age of baseball with all these great new players too. Especially in the American League.

Speak for yourself. There's plenty of talent on the young side of most AL teams. Trout, Scherzer, Machado, Perez, Sale (Yeah, I said it. Bring it on.).

Hardly the dark ages here.

Plus it's not all Yankees and Red Sox as usual.

Three Orioles in the starting lineup is like a breath of fresh air.

I actually think the fans got it more correct than in years past. Teams look good.

JJ Cooper ‏@jjcoop36 36m

Was fun looking back at how we ranked and what we said about the 2013 MLB all-stars at BA as minor leaguers. http://ht.ly/mNQtL

Dan Hayes ‏@DanHayesCSN 33m

Jim Leyland has suggested Robin Ventura coach 3rd in All-Star Game. Ventura unsure, has had some Tommy Lasorda flashbacks.

Default Play Ball!

Anyone else see the Joe Torre piece? He said he grew up hating the Yankees.

Time to turn down the audio on the TV and turn on the radio. Any All Star Game on Fox is unwatchable as long as the insufferable Joe Buck is doing play by play.
