Today's slate.

The Big Hurst - Clayton Kershaw

skoormit - David Price

La Osa Rosa - Doug Fister

The Big Hurst: Just my two cents about All Star position player selections.  In the NL, where are Sterling Marte (3.7 WAR, 7th overall on the WAR list, and significantly better than Gonzalez, Beltran, and Harper) and Chase Utley (2.7 WAR, 19th overall on the WAR list, and better than Brandon Phillips)?  In the AL, where are Jacoby Ellsbury (3.0 WAR, 12th overall on the WAR list, and better than Adam Jones) or Brett Gardner (2.8 WAR, 13th overall, and also better than Jones)?  There's a lot of seeming injustice on the AL side at third base, but holy cow there's a lot of good third basemen.  The two best position players overall might be Manny Machado and Miguel Cabrera, which excludes notable talents like Josh Donaldson (3.8 WAR, 7th overall), Evan Longoria (3.6 WAR, 8th overall), Kyle Seager (2.7 WAR, 15th overall), Adrian Beltre (2.6 WAR, 18th overall), and Jose Iglesias (2.6 WAR, 20th overall).  That's a lot of talent at one position.


The Big Hurst: I think we've all had a streak and a slump now.  Missing points with a 72 is pretty brutal.
