    Not that anyone can replace Kershaw, but that's a little like replacing a Ferrari with a junker that's had a new coat of paint and some repairs.

    Hopefully Kershaw will be back soon the Dodgers already had a rotation + worth of injured starting pitchers. All star voting ends today and soon we will know which players are going to make the team.

    The Cubs look like the crappy 2009-2014 Cubs these past few weeks with making errors and mistakes, bad pitching, and stranding runners in scoring position with less than two outs. It's very disappointing to see them regress back to this crap.

    Angels made 11 runs on the 7th inning against the Red Sox.

    It's 2016 and the Cubs are still having trouble with the Mets. Perhaps this has always been the case, like in 1969?

    No. Baseball is stupid, dumb, random and ignores all logic and reason, for good and for ill. That's all it is. The Cubs were 7-0 against the Mets in the regular season and then baseball said "lol" in the playoffs. It's meaningless.

    The Mariners and White Sox sure surprised us in the beginning of the season. I thought they would go to the postseason this year, but nope.

    I'm glad my Dodgers are doing okay.

    Im a sox fan and I knew they wouldnt keep it up, mostly beacuse I dont think robin is a great manager. They have talent but lose too many stupid games.

    The American league gets home field advantage for the world series again. The All-star game was pretty close, final score of 4-2.
    and it looks like the "hacker's curse" strikes again for the St. Louis Cardinals with that guy striking out leaving the bases loaded

    One thing that never changes for Dombrowski... trading farm pieces for Major League Talent be it an overpay or just plain risky. Gotta say though, Boston does look a little better after their trades up to this point.

    Gonna be one heck of a 2nd half in Baseball this season, every division is up for the taking. Well unless you're a Twins or Braves fan and probably a Diamondbacks or Padres fan

    Man, we may lose Kershaw for rest of the season (and maybe postseason).

    Baseball gods why

    We are nothing but the pawns of a petty, vengeful deity who enjoys twisting probability in the name of getting a few cheap laughs out of it.

    And I thought our pitching rotation was getting good again.

    Then again Ryu came out disappointing and went back to the DL.

    I'll say this, Verlander feels like a sleeper for the Cy Young this season. Weather he wins it or not really doesn't matter, but it's nice to see hi, return with a vengeance this season.

    Wish Cleveland would lose more often though : /

    Giants had a large lead over the dodgers after the all star break and now their lead is just 1 game

    (Dodgers are about to jump a bunch of teams in MLB.com's power rankings they weren't even in the top 10 this week)

    After the All star break, they haven't been the same.

    Today's games were crazy though.

    Lucroy vetoes his trade to the 1st place Indians... what a strange world we live in these days

    He didn't feel it was a fit for him financially or as far as playing time (and quite frankly the Indians are pretty dumb for not addressing both of those concerns, but that's just me). He negotiated a contract that allows him to have that degree of control, so good for him for using it.

    Yankees got paid at this deal, I'd damn near say they might just have the best Farm System now... if not close. Just a simple case of the rich get richer

    I totally agree with him and that's not just because I'm a Tiger fan hoping for a Cleveland slide... He did however get moved to another 1st place team where Catching will be no problem whatsoever (Texas)
