      Bad, but I’ll go.

      It can’t be worse than Transformers. Literally. Unless Hoez With Attitudes did the soundtrack, it can’t possibly be worse than that movie.

          I’m talking about the first one.

          I couldn’t possibly bear watching the second. I don’t think there’s a cyanide capsule big enough for me to go within 100 feet of a theater showing more of Shia LeBouf being an annoying fucktard spouting lines of inane dialogue that makes your ears bleed.

            Dude, don’t even bother going to GI Joe. It’s supposed to be completely horrid. Even the first Transformers (I know next to nothing of the second and won’t be seeing it) didn’t have worse buzz than GI Joe has.

      • Accent Shallow

        I’ll quote the relevant excerpt here:

        Major league baseball pays the expenses for each player here and one guest. In most cases, players bring wives or girlfriends. Damaso Garcia, the Toronto Blue Jays second baseman, brought his shortstop, Alfredo Griffin. When the Tigers Alan Trammell hurt his arm and couldn’t play tonight, Manager Joe Altobelli named Griffin to the team, partly because he’s a fine player, mostly because he was there.

        Thanks to John Feinstein.

    If there was one guy I could start a franchise with, it’d be Joe Mauer.

    • Teix is the Man

      Would your answer change if he moved off of catcher?

      • Mike Pop

        Yes. Not because his bat isn’t that good though, just because you can find better value in Hanley Ramirez or maybe even J-Upton if Mauer was playing 1b right?

        • Teix is the Man

          Yeah, I agree with you if he stays at catcher. However, if he does, I would problably go with a Justin Upton.

  • Dela G

    how the hell were the yankees not able to trade for edwin jackson?

    • Accent Shallow

      Because they didn’t have a Matt Joyce-type outfielder in their system? Because the Rays were unlikely to trade him within the division? Because their rotation seemed pretty air-tight in the off-season, so much so that Phil Hughes was starting in Scranton?

  • V

    From the previous thread (I was late to the party ;-)):

    I do not trade a potential superstar bat for a 32 year old pitcher.

    Pitchers, even the ‘known commodities’, are fragile creatures.

    Chris Carpenter was signed to a nice extension by the Cardinals after a few years of utter dominance. How’d that work out?

    Roy Halladay has already had one injury this season. Who’s to say he pitches a season and a half of dominant, injury-free baseball? The odds are probably less than 80%. I need 100% to deal Montero.

      unbelievable

      • V

        Looked like a slider ;-)

      • Ivan

        That was a slider.

        • Dela G

          looked like fb , but after rewind, you people were right… it was a slider :(

          • Ivan

            Ivan 1, Dela o. Bye.

  • Kyle R

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen Nathan actually pitch well.

  • V

    Ballgame.

  • Ace

    Do they play ‘Enter Sandman’ when Mo comes in?

  • Ivan

    Who’s a bigger sucker for breaking balls out of the K zone, Howard or Soriano? lol.

    • V

      Howard’s at least adjusted his plate approach lately. Soriano never has.

  • Drew

    Homefield advantage sounds good.

  • JackC

    I wouldn’t think the guy would want his apartment that tightly sealed up a few minutes after he’d eaten Taco Bell

    • Thomas

      IETC.

  • Drew

    I know Inge had a great start and all but, how the hell is he there over Al?

    • Moshe Mandel

      Wins Player
      3.8 Longoria
      3.5 Inge
      2.9 Figgins
      2.5 Rolen
      2.2 A-Rod
      2.1 Crede
      1.4 Teahen
      1.4 Young

      • Drew

        Didn’t A-Rod miss a month?

        • Moshe Mandel

          So? The question is who deserves to be in the game, and the answer is Inge.

          • Drew

            Well I didn’t ask that question. Since when is the all star game about who deserves it? It’s a popularity contest and normally the best/most popular players are there regardless of their first half.

            • http://theyankeeuniverse.com Moshe Mandel

              That’s not true. The managers try to pick the most deserving guys- only the fans go on popularity.

  • Thomas

    I’d like to see K-Rod bat against Rivera, just so Mo can show him how it is done.

  • Dela G

    man i was praying werth wouldn’t get that

  • BklynJT

    Whoa, that catch was awesome.

  • JackC

    Nice play Werth

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    I did not think Werth was gonna make that play.

  • JackC

    So the NL centerfield depth chart is two Phillies deep.

  • Hova

    I can’t believe Mariano has a kid that age. Mo still looks like a young kid himself.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      His hairline begs to differ.

      • Riddering

        Mo’s baseball cap takes ten years off of his hairline.

    • AndrewYF

      He’s balding.

      • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

        So is Pedroia.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Outside? Bullshit that was right on the corner.

  • Dela G

    HOLY CRAP!!

    96MPH!

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Heh, the FOX gun just had Mo at 96.

    • Dela G

      incredible pitch that was

      he hasnt hit 96 in 2-3 years

  • JobaWockeeZ

    I think Fox has mistaken Mo for a Red Sox player.

  • Steve in PDX

    a 21 yo against Mo? at least he got the bat on the ball…

  • Salty Buggah

    Mo hit 96?!!!

  • Nikhil R.

    Bartlett is solid at short.

  • E-ROC

    Werth just had to sign that damn extension. I was hoping he’d be a Yankee.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Now that I think about it, four players from my fantasy team are in this game. Hawpe, Josh Johnson, Greinke and Felix.

  • JackC

    Nasty pitch from Mo

  • Ivan

    That’s just not fair. Not fair at all.

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    Hawpe got owned on that 1-1 pitch.

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Did he just say Brad Hawpe is a good defensive outfielder?

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Did Joe Buck just call Brad Hawpe a very good defensive outfielder? He did, didn’t he.

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Jinx. Buy me a Coke.

      /Office’d

    • Arin

      Praise be to Mo.

    • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

      Wow, he did?

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Bye, Brad.

  • Dela G

    dayuuuuuuum

    mariano looked vintage

  • Ivan

    No chance Hawpe. None.

  • E-ROC

    Poor Hawpe. He was just helpless up there.

  • Drew

    Hanley looks like a kid…

  • Tony

    The Sandman entered, The Sandman won.

    Away with your inferior league.

  • Steve in PDX

    game set match

  • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

    AL does it again!

  • Ivan

    Another All-Star game, another AL All-Star win.

  • JackC

    Mo Mo, Mo. You are a better than average pitcher.

  • Salty Buggah

    Mo is GOD

  • NYQ

    The GREAT Mo!!!!!!!!!!1

  • giselle

    mariano’s son is old.

  • Tony

    You just know Papelbon is going to blow the streak the SECOND Mo retires.

    • Mike Pop

      By the time Mo retires, Pap will be on a diff team or retired himself.

      • Dela G

        lol

  • Dela G

    mariano does it again!

  • Riddering

    Mo remains unbelievable.

  • BklynJT

    Mo’s kid looks like a mini Obama.

  • zzzz

    rivera just sealed the deal on the yanks home field advantage for the world series. yeah, i went there.

  • Hova

    Carl Crawford MVP?

    • Riddle

      How bout Mo for MVP?

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Good call, Hova.

    • Dela G

      HOVA! HOVA! HOVA! [/jay z

  • Bam Bam Balboni

    Mariano “The Masterpiece” Rivera does it yet again. You make all Yankee fans proud. Congrats on the All Star saves record. I love Mo !!!!!Now back to my beer. Goodnight and see you guys Friday night when we tame the pussy cats from Detroit.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Well, at least the NL’s been competitive the last few years.

    • chriskeo

      yeah, but it was really short this year, nothing compared to last year

  • desus

    We should sign Mo’s son now. Just in case.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    haha that trophy is about the same height as that microphone.

  • Dela G

    dear god

    please let carl crawford’s option not be picked up by the rays

    thanks

    Dela

    • chriskeo

      or we trade for him instead

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      Just to ensure it doesn’t happen, I’m gonna stat sacrificing people animals buckets of chicken now.

      /Major League’d

    • Hova

      +1. But he’s a bargain at $10M. But he would be a perfect replacement for Johnny in left.

  • Hova

    I bet Bud Selig got beat up a lot as a kid. Now he has more money than God.

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

    Damn, Papelbon got the win.

    • Dela G

      screw him

      i can’t wait to blow him up in the second half

    • Thomas

      For good measure: http://tiny.cc/oeXuc

      • Hova

        Those sunglasses have to be from the Gloria Vanderbilt Collection.

      • Riddering

        He looks like he came straight out of an 80s flick.

  • Hova

    Mo is the freaking best. We can now rest easy. The Yankees will have home field in this year’s World Series. Have a goodnight fellas.

  • Quikksand

    AL Wins, mo is the man
