re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
I think baseball is trolling us all and flipped the NL East standings... it should be the other way around. For as shitty as the Marlins have been, I can't believe what the Phillies went through. Even with their injuries, no excuse for Cliff Lee to have gotten his first win of the season just last week. However I do have more faith in thinking the Phillies will make a second half run before my Marlins do, especially with Stanton out. NL East should see a fun second half.
Pirates 10 games over at the break. Lead the Central by 1 game. They had a hot June, I think they'll hang around for the rest of the season.
I don't get hyped for All Stars either. The Baseball All Star game is the best though. I always watch that. The Derby not so much. If I'm bored, I'll switch it on and off but the Derby just doesn't entice me as much as it did when I was a little kid. For shits and giggles, I think Trumbo and McCutchen will face off in the Finals. Trumbo with the edge in that.
