Today at some point
This is incredible. We need to find platoon replacements for Sogard and Rosales. These guys are horrible. That's the only trade(s) that I'd like to see.

I've heard Chase Utley's name pop up as of late. What do you think?

If Lew is willing to open up the bank book, sure. But I'm hoping to land a decent SS, So that Lowrie can move to 2B.

Well he is gonna be a FA this year so he could be a rental for us to make a run, but I agree I hope we pick up a SS. Either/or is just fine with me

Colon only athletic named to the all star team, such bull s**t that Donaldson and Balfour didn't make it

Yeah Donaldson got screwed. He'll find his way on to the team eventually due to injuries or drop outs, but its still pretty insulting to not even be selected to the final vote ballot.

I find it weird that big fat Bartolo Colon, a known steroid user who is 100 years old, doesnt have overpowering stuff, and isnt marketable at all was selected over Donaldson.

Its the elephant (ironically) in the room that he basically went overseas for a weird European stem cell procedure, then comes back with a 25 year old elbow on his 55 year old truck driver body, and is dominating. I dont think anyone wouldve minded if he was left off the team.
just Colon? What a joke

Balfour and JD also both deserving of spots in the ASG
MLB is a joke with voting system.

We don't need a big name I just want capable platoons who aren't Rosales or Sogard.

Hopefully just lights a fire in both and motivates them in the playoff push
How does a 1st place team with the 5th best record in baseball only have 1 All-Star? I'd be pissed if I was an A's fan.
The AL Final Vote ballot is the real joke.
