Trade seems to be done and MLB just doesn’t want them to announce it during the game.

Seems like a courtesy thing. Unfortunately our current media environment doesn’t really allow for that.
Seriously, they might as well embrace the fact that this stuff is happening and being chronicled in real time. Its 2018 and everyone knows as soon as each side says "done" on a deal. Why MLB insists on pretending that we live in a different environment is beyond me.

I really want ARod to be offended by Machado news breaking during a headline event

I know it was noted earlier but these All Star caps are damn sweet. Every single one is pretty nice looking. The Pirates one especially so.

Unless something significant happens I sure don't see a clear cut MVP in this game. Are they gonna give it to Trout because FOX demands he be treated like the greatest ever?

Trout/Judge split if it stays the same is my guess.

Wait, what? He pitched bottom of the 1st, and AL took lead in the top of the 2nd when he was still the pitcher of record. When Severino came in, it was 1-0 already.
Yes, you are correct. But I decided to give you a strike for caring about who gets the W in an all-star game

Morton sprinkled salt on the AL s

Lowrey is looking around like aren’t the SS and I supposed to be signaling who covers second on a grounder?
Actually didn't lindor tell buck he had just signalled exactly that? That he would take the throw from 3rd so lowrie could play toward 1st. And Jed screwed it up by bobbling it.

Answer, yes he did.
