    National League won the All Star game. The last time that happened, I hadn't met my wife yet, I was 2 years from moving to Arizona, and had recently got officially divorced.

    Great play by Byrd in the 9th.

    And Young made the final catch! I mention this only because it's pretty much the only good highlight of the D-backs season. It should be noted somewhere.

    So I guess all that talk about players refusing to play in Arizona was just bluster?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Great time to be a Braves' fan. Leading the division at the halfway point, and having the all star MVP.

    I know, long season, though.

    As bad as the Phils played since mid May and only be 4 games back, I'd be watching over their shoulders if I were the Braves. Especially considering that the Phils have not been 100% healthy all year. We were able to win for a bit without Rollins but it caught up with us. You don't lose a former MVP and expect to win consistently. We've had major injuries:

    Polanco
    Rollins
    Utley
    Ruiz
    Durbin
    Happ
    Lidge
    Romero

    And we're still in the hunt.

    By that rationale, take away the Braves' horrible June ( I think we lost like 12 or 13 in a row) and we'd probably be about 7 games up. I still wouldn't be surprised to see the Philthies win the division, though. A month ago I'd been surprised if they didn't win it. I really thought the Braves' had a chance for the wild card going into the season, then thought they'd finish with a losing record. Now I think they're a legit contender.

    I was just disappointed that Heyward wasn't in the HR Derby. THAT would have been fun to watch.

    On May 18th we were 5 games up then we forgot how to score. Hopefully things are starting to turn around. Sweeping a 4 game series from the Reds was huge. We need to get some pitching and bench help if we are to have a chance. And you're right, Heyward is a beast.
