Podcast: All-Star snubs, power rankings

By Eric Karabell

Welcome to July episodes of the Baseball Today podcast. Mark Simon and I got the new week started with All-Star roster talk and much more!

1. From the good to the bad to the Dusty Baker, we tackle angles on who made and didn't make the All-Star teams, while trying to explain misplaced anger.

2. In other news, Carlos Lee stays out but Jim Thome heads to a contender.

3. In Simon Says, you can't miss the Kernel's all-same-name team!

4. Our power rankings are the same at the top, but not after the first five!

5. Emailers are curious about relievers, a one-game playoff and much more.

So download and listen to Monday's significant Baseball Today podcast, and hold the anger! Smiles for all!
