Do these guys get some kind of perk everytime they mention Trout being the best player in baseball?
MLB has been so inept at making Trout a crossover media star that they've devolved into just having announcers say "He's the best player in baseball!" on every national broadcast. It's sort of hilarious.

Edit: Hilarious -- seemed like the AL bench was giving JD crap for not hustling to take 2nd on that bobble.

Quick, someone rip up JD's contract that he redid after we ripped it up after the first half of its first season!

Did Buck just say no one really knows how good Ramirez is?

I mean, he was voted into ASG, no?

They can't in this situation, but I'd love be for them to become regular things.

That interview with Mookie in RF was one of the best things about this season.
Agreed. "I ain't getting this one boys!"

I'd listen to him, Cora, Speier, etc. for the whole game instead of the usual NESN interview selections.

Am I the only one hoping Machado blows out a knee in this game?
