We have reached the All-Star break and guess who are the best 3 teams in the National League? The Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs. The NL Central rocks this year. Fear the Midwesterners! The Dutch girl picked us! Us! Not you! Holland loves the NL Central, thank you Amsterdam, good night!
I enjoy the All-Star break. Sure, it’s 3 days without real baseball, but I like the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game. Should it decide home field advantage in the World Series? HELL NO (2004stillbitterfreakinRedSoxgrumblegrumbleharumphharumph). But I love how the players goof around with each other while cute little kids run around. Since Cinnamon Girl already delightfully highlighted the All Stars, I’d like to take this chance to highlight the Derby guys. The Home Run Derby airs tonight at 8/7 central on ESPN. Tune in for a Bugs & Cranks liveblog!
