BP’s Kevin Goldstein prepared a mock draft for your consideration.

Jason: "Do you expect me to talk, Budfinger?"
Budfinger: "No, Mr. Giambi.  I expect you to.. oh wait.  Yes, talk."
Jason: "I already did talk."
Budfinger: "Well, now I expect you to talk to my Number 2, George Mitchell, head of SPECTRE."  The MLBPA will play the role of M in this episode.  Pete reports that Johnny Damon wonders why Jason is in trouble.

Ozzie Guillen thinks Selig and Mitchell’s probe unfairly targets latino players.

Gordon Edes writes that Daisuke doesn’t think he’s worthy of being on the AL All-Star squad in a very interesting story that is packed with quotes, especially from Francona, who doesn’t like the selection process.

Has Clemens’ "act" worn thin?  Nancy Armour thinks so.

SI has an all-longshot draft team photo gallery.  Mike Lowell and Jorge Posada are on it.

  • Would be nice to see Wang pitch himself into the All Star.. and I’m definitely root for DiceK to get in (though I’m fuzzy about the numbers).
    Also, I hope they vote Matsui in. Ah well.

  • I’m with Damon – why is Giambi in trouble? I’m sick of Bud Selig and his double standard. He was in charge when the policy was “don’t ask, don’t tell.” The fact that he’s now trying to save face by acting tough on steroids just smacks of normal Selig stupidity. Seriously, if I ever ran into Selig on the street, I’d punch him in the nose.
    I’m with Dice-K, he isn’t worthy (as of right now) of being an All Star. He’s been mediocre.
    Clemens’ act was old 3 years ago. I’m wondering where the scar tissue in his groin came from…is that where he injected steroids? (Ok, that was a joke…sort of).
    Mikey and Posada deserve to make the All Star game. I predict that only Posada will make it.

  • Posada is definitely the best offensive catcher in the league right now. I-Rod may be the best defensive catcher, but when the hell has that ever actually mattered?
    I agree Mike Lowell deserves to be on the team, but certainly not over A-Rod.
    I’d say Youkilis is more deserving than Ortiz, but damn it, there’s no DH pick, and people are stupid.
    Jeter needs to step it up to really deserve his spot. Cano definitely shouldn’t be there.
    Pettitte does. So does Beckett, Haren, Shields. I trust the players to make smart picks there.
    And I don’t care what Papelbon says. Rivera is unbelievably respected throughout the league, and he will be on the roster. So will Paps.
