Z and Dempster are starters on the NL squad. Woody is in, as well as Soto, Fuku, and Sori.

ARam makes it as a reserve.

All of TBS's graphics look like crap. Looks like this was produced by a 8th grade visual arts class. Looks like I'm watching it on, not digital cable.

I just posted this in the thread below as well, but the 7 members the Cubs have on the team is the most in Cubs history. They had 6 in 1988 and 1936, but never 7.

Cubs will have a big say in getting home field for the NL then.

Given the Cubs' road record this year, I'd be a lot more confident about the NL's chances of winning the game if it was held in Wrigley Field...

little izzy returns...good for him.

johnson leading off again...meh. team is too loaded with talent to do that, biggie, though.

edmonds? fuku?

what's up?

lineups corrected...apparently Edmonds has a sore hand from the play at the plate and Lou wanted to rest Fukudome.


With much competition, yours is the hippest signature yet on this forum. My answer is: Yes. That's Chicago. Now that I think about it, we could have a Chicago Seven discussion. Politicians: Thompson (Big Bill), Bauler, Daley, Daley, Burke, Byrne, Washington. (Obama's not just Chicago anymore.) Progressives/radicals : Terkel, Despres, Darrow, Altgeld, Addams, Metcalfe, Ayers. Jazz Musicians: Bud Freeman, Jimmy McPartland, Ira Sullivan, Johnny Griffin, Von Freeman, Fred Anderson, Muhal Richard Abrams. Suggestions? [Off day tomorrow!]

Baseball question: I remember the 1969 Cubs (who broke my 16-year-old heart and made me the broken-down die-hard Cubs fan I am today) placing their entire starting infield on the All-Star Team: Santo, Kessinger, Beckert, Banks, and Hundley; and didn't Williams and Jenkins make it too? Who knows the details?

Hundley, Banks, Beckert, Kessinger and Santo all made the NL All-Star team in 1969. Santo and Kessinger started. But those were the only 5 Cubs on the team, neither Williams nor Jenkins made it. Sadly while all got in the game, they went a collective 0-9 at the plate.

Bedard's start pushed back due to shoulder tightness and he may not pitch again until after the All-Star break.

Looks like Marshall wants to stay in the rotation. Bang up job. Nice road series win.

Ranged from 85 to 91 mph today.

He also barked at the umpire in the 1st, wanted the outside on one pitch. Good to see that kind of passion from him.

it would be nice to upgrade team without giving up
marshall or gallagher.

here's the 1969 All-Star squad...


Banks, Beckert, Hundley, Kessinger, Santo (Five, and yes, the entire infield).

Fergie Jenkins didn't make the pitching staff that year (Carlton, Gibson, Dierker, Grant Jackson, Koosman, Marichal, PNiekro, Seaver, Bill Singer)

NL won 9-3, Carlton started and got the win. Willie McCovey was the MVP with 2 HR's. Bench, Frank Howard and Freehan also had HR's.

Looks like Sabathia to the Brewers is 'imminent'. Is Harden to the Cubs still a viable rumor? What package are the A's asking for?

Fucking Brewers.

still think LaPorta to the Indians won't happen?
