Flying Solo at the All-Star Game: A story of why we love baseball

Funny story about showing up to the all-star game without a ticket an hour after getting off a plane from the Dominican Republic. Worth your 5 minutes. Complete with a t-ball HR derby and David Freese eating a steak.

For whatever reason, the good and seemingly reasonable folks over at 1450 the Sports Buzz have again asked me to join them to talk a bit o' Reds. That's 1450 on your AM dial if you are in the Louisville area, or you can follow the link and stream it from their website. I'll be on at around 5:30.

"(Vince) Coleman stole a pro-rated 173 bases (assuming 135 games) in 1983, or 8.98 standard deviations from major league average.

Joey Votto will start at 1B. Chapman and Bruce also made it. Phillips and Cueto were snubbed. While the players get a cut at it before LaRussa, this doesn't seem like innocent oversight.
