Don't know if you got a chance to see the All-Star Selection Show on TBS over the weekend, but if you didn't.....you didn't miss anything. The program, which was Ripken and Gwynn's debut for the station, was lackluster and was absent of any energy whatsoever.
Both stated that Bonds should be in the ASG, but neither gave any other opinions that were noteworthy. God bless Ernie Johnson for trying, but this might be like pulling teeth by the time we get to the MLB Playoffs.
"Yes, there's a shadow that's hanging over top of him. The commissioner and Hank Aaron are torn whether they should celebrate the breaking of the all-time home run record," Ripken said Tuesday. "But when I think of Barry, I think of him as an All-Star player."___________________________
In related ASG news.....Another great idea from ESPN has Kenny Mayne in a Kayak for the Homerun Derby. He'll be using some sort of underwater camera used in the America's Cup races. There's no over/under set yet for the number of times he uses the phrase, "Your puny ballparks are too small to contain my gargantuan blasts!"
