Every time this gif gets posted I watch it like 30 times in a row and it just never becomes any less majestic.

I like how the score at the top of the screen changes before the umpire signals safe.

Weird that it’s 7 NL players and 1 AL player. I saw Jose Ramirez declined. Probably a few others too.


I think it’s just because these are the guys who wanted to do it. It’s going to be awesome when there is no AL/NL. Not sure how the ASG voting will work though.

Super weird seeing teams with nearly 100 games played at the break

Last year with how the Cubs ended the half and the fact that their only All-Star was Wade Davis I pretty much skipped all the All star game festivities. This year I am pretty excited to watch tomorrow and Tuesday. Hope Javy and Schwarber do better than Bryzzo in 2015

I fully anticipate javy hitting 30 hrs in the first round, and unable to swing the bat in the second.

I think his numbers will be tempered by him instinctively flipping his bat after every HR and then having to go and retrieve it

He's going to throw his back out and miss the second half of the season

Not to kill the fun but the score changed to 5-5 to reflect the run scored before Javy. Javy’s run was the winning run.

My bet would be Ramirez participates next year in Cleveland.
