Podcast: Futures Game recap, All-Star news

Happy Monday! Keith Law and I gathered in downtown Kansas City on Monday morning to tape the latest Baseball Today podcast, talking all things All-Star!

1. Offense was the story in Sunday’s Futures Game, as the World team struggled to pitch, and quite a few hitters put on a show. Keith discusses the good, the bad and the ugly.

2. The Home Run Derby is on the schedule for Monday, and while Keith isn’t interested, I’ll be watching from the press box. Who’s gonna win?

3. Meanwhile, news continues to be made surrounding Tuesday’s All-Star Game, including the announcement of the starting pitchers. Who is most deserving?

4. We take stock of the standings at the break, noting how one man has made the Pittsburgh Pirates contenders, but a teammate of his could be emerging.

5. Our emailers want to talk about Gerrit Cole, Trevor Bauer and the Red Sox (contending Red Sox!), and we do our best to answer them.

So download and listen to Monday’s Baseball Today podcast, because we are in Kansas City, it is hot, and we’re having a blast!
