Baseball Break Time

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!

  1. Actually, I think a Cubs/Cards NLCS is inevitable, what with the 100th anniversary blahblah storied rivalry blahblah. The Brewers are going to be left out in the cold, which is too bad because the NL West doesn’t have a team over .500.

    I respectfully disagree. Justin Morneau is my #1 hottie in the HRD, followed closely by Josh Hamilton.

  2. Longo has the best everything.

    And if there’s a Cards/Cubs NLCS – I will lose 10 pounds have have no fingernails, because they’ll be the only thing I’ll be able to eat for a week and a half.

  3. Oh my dear sweet baby Jesus, I hate the all-star break. It has just started, and I’m already so bored I could cry. Give me meaningful baseball or give me death!

  4. To me, Evan Longoria bears (pun intended!) a certain resemblance to Teddy Grahams..

    and yet I still find him immensely appealing.
