OK...well tonight with the Nats off, one can watch/listen to the Caps pooping the bed again vs the Guins...uh, not....
They will probably win tonight to give everyone a tease.

I'll take an off day over our bullpen any day.

Tough call. Haven't had a root canal done so I can't say. If it's anything like getting your wisdom teeth pulled, I'll take the root canal.

A: the pain ends eventually
B: you get medication to deal with it

I'm sure the players don't mind this one. FP said a bunch of them were going to Game 1 of the NBA finals.

10PM start times are NOT better than off days (unless you're awbb).

I can't watch those. Just not interesting to me. Maybe if Harper were involved (glad he is not). Over the years I have lost interest in the all star game itself. Looks like a good week to catch up on some reading.

I won't watch a minute of either one.  Good week to catch up on a bunch of recorded TV programs that have been preempted for the past three months by baseball.
Funny thing is, growing up I loved the all star game. Back then the players cared about it.  Now, pitchers opting out  - or their teams opting them out - by pitching them on Sunday so they can't pitch Tuesday, cheapens the game significantly. Players like Jeter and Desmond, opting out because they want the time off.   I don't blame any of them for it, but if they don't care enough about the game then I don't either.  I think it's time for the allstar game to go away.  Just give all the players the four days of..

I don't think I've watched a HR Derby since Stuart v Robinson:

You would have been the only one to see it on the aforementioned (original) series.

The one with Josh Hamilton was a ton of fun to watch :)
