NOT AN ALL-STAR

Cabrera, Machado, Longoria, Beltre....Donaldson is having an all-star caliber season, but theres just too many great AL 3B. Not all of them can go unless theres some drop outs.

I think it's ridiculous that the best player on the team with the best record in the AL isn't in the game. He should've made it over Machado

Like I said, Machado definately deserves to be there. Hes on pace for 216 hits and 66 doubles, and has been the best defensive 3B in baseball. Hes on par with the very best defenders at any position. Plus he just turned 21, and is going to be a star for years to come. You can say Donaldson should be there, but so should Machado. A couple guys had to be left out.

I think Machado deserves to be there. I also think more than two 3rd basemen deserve to be there given the depth of deserving 3Bmen in the AL right now.
And nice to see the A's continue to take series' even with our bats in a deep slump. Our bats have carried our pitching for a good part of the year so it's nice to see the pitching carry our offense now.

Should all come together soon, hopefully when I see them in Anaheim this upcoming weekend.

Yup, thing is the A's are a 2nd half team and they just tore it up in the 1st half. The rest of the MLB should be scared
Hopefully Reddick and Cespedes half a strong 2nd half. Cespedes is a lot better than he's playing, I think he'll hit better than .220 post all star break as well as Reddick. Anderson should come back around August too.

I wouldn't mind adding another quality RP and maybe a second baseman if Green doesn't produce. Other than that were pretty much set The pitching depth on this team is crazy. We have 7 talented SPs lol

All of that, plus to be fair to the offense they just had a stretch where they played the Reds (Team ERA: 3.43), Cardinals (3.40), Pirates (3.08) and Red Sox (3.91) 11 of 17 games and went 8-3 against them. Now they get the play the Angels (4.31), Astros (4.84) and Blue Jays (4.22) for the next 13 games.

I put 50 on the A's. I'm not sure the odds I gotta check my ticket. I too placed it on Super Bowl weekend.
