    Big congratulations to Melky Cabrera who'll be starting in the outfield for the NL All Stars.

    Cabrera ended up leading all NL outfielders. He garnered 7,521,784 votes. Only catcher Buster Posey received more support on the entire NL ballot.

    It resulted in Cabreraís first All-Star selection. Itís a meaningful honor for the 27-year-old, who played alongside so many perennial All-Stars with the New York Yankees and was expected to become one himself.

    Cabrera said he spoke with Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano on Saturday, and they both expressed hope theyíd meet up in Kansas City. Coincidentally, thatís where Cabrera broke out for his 201-hit season a year ago.

    Good for the Pirates. They are in a win now situation and don't have time to watch their top prospects struggle at the majors. They should pick up an OF by the end of the month and make a run for their division.

    AAV of $2.5 mil for a player who was MLB avg at the ages of 21-22. It's a very small risk with a very high upside.

    I find it interesting that many of the same people who have no doubt that AJ would not be pitching nearly as well in the AL East, are also confident that Ian Kennedy could have had the same season that he did last year with the Yankees. It's easy to underestimate just how bad the NL Central and West are.

    Kinda amusing (not really) how Cashman's two biggest trades in recent memory are so vastly different in terms of production both sides are getting from their respective players.

    Melky Cabrera wins All Star MVP. Has more hits (320) than anyone in MLB over last season and a half. If he stays motivated we got the short end of the deal w/ Boone Logan

    No, the Yankees did just fine in that deal. There was no way they were going to get this Melky Cabrera in NY.

    Doesn't say much for the NYY organization if this comes down to a question of motivation. Either way I see Melky > Logan and that is all that is left of the deal at this point.

    Let's not forget that the team that we traded Melky to released him after one season where he was one of the worst players in the MLB.

    And i think the same thing would have happened if he satyed in new york. I believe it took the kick in the ass of being non-tendered for Melky to find the motivation to put in the work needed to be a good MLBer. Before that it just seemed he skated by.

    That said, I'm happy to see him doing well. I enjoyed the melkman in new york.

    Jonathan Albaladejo just got the save in the Triple A All-Star Game as the Pacific Coast League beat the International League 3-0. The game was in Buffalo and 2 runs were scored in the top of the first. The fourth batter of the game hit the game-winning sacrifice fly.

    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Melky had almost 2000 ABs in a Yankeee uniform and couldn't get on base or slug. I'm happy for him now but it wasn't like he never got a chance here. He was an everyday OFer for 4 years.

    Speaking of Melky's performance -- his off the field performance includes taking a leave for the birth of his child. This will be his 4th child (I think this is the same mother from child #3 so I believe we're still at 3 moms/4 kids. ).
