Wait! There's another All-Star game!
2006-07-12 15:23
by Bob Timmermann

Live from Fifth Third Park in Toledo!

It's the AAA All-Star game. The Pacific Coast League takes on the International League.

Tony Gwynn is playing in this one. Tony Gwynn, Jr. that is. You can see other top prospects in action like: Stephen Drew, James Loney, Howie Kendrick, and Tom Gorzelanny to name a few.

You can also see Kevin Witt, Jorge Velandia, AND Ernie Young!

The game will be webcast for free!

You had me at, "free." But just barely.

You can also call the stadium 1.6 Bank Park.

Mmm, clip of Konerko in an Albuquerque Dukes uniform. Already I'm depressed.

NO! Why did they bring Duke Castiglione?! I don't know if I can tolerate that. I signed on for free, and maybe Kevin Witt (because I confused him with Bobby Witt). I find Mr. Castiglione deeply irritating.
2006-07-12 16:06:12
5.   Bob Timmermann
The lesser of two Castigliones is still a Castiglione.

There was a minor league Home Run Derby? Wow.
2006-07-12 16:14:58

Who won it?

Andy Marte.

Drat, I didn't have him in the pool!

Joe Thurston is the starting 2B for the International League. Awesome.
2006-07-12 16:17:02
11.   Andrew Shimmin
9- Pellam did, just ask him.

Joe Thurston pops up the first pitch to the Drew who isn't J.D. Or that other one.

I have a fairly long disquisition on first pitch swinging, but I seem to have left it in my other coat. . .

12 Hey! No prepared remarks. Extemporaneity or nothin' here!
2006-07-12 16:30:36
14.   Bob Timmermann
I think first pitch swinging is a good idea here because who wants to spend extra time in Toledo?
2006-07-12 16:32:37
15.   Andrew Shimmin
Klinger and Honeycutt are in the crowd! I just hope they don't end up talking politics. And I hope Farr swings his head wildly, decapitating Castiglione.
2006-07-12 16:33:26
16.   Andrew Shimmin
Ah, Farr has a golf tournament to plug. Well, it still counts.
2006-07-12 16:34:45
17.   Bob Timmermann
Is that Rick Honeycutt or B.J. Hunnicut?

Remember, you're dealing with a guy who remembers episodes of "Tattingers."

2006-07-12 16:40:43
18.   Andrew Shimmin
Really? Hunnicut? You're having me on, then, right? Well, I'll be the son of a terrorist whore. It's like my entire life, to this point, has been based on a lie.
2006-07-12 16:41:37
19.   Andrew Shimmin
Loney Ks swinging. What a bum.
2006-07-12 16:48:58
20.   Andrew Shimmin
Howie Kendrick fails to catch a throw from the 3B Leone something. Bum, bum, bum.

Is the gigantic Hendrickson on the mound related the, "one of the top lefties in the AL," Hendrickson?
2006-07-12 16:53:06
22.   Andrew Shimmin
And now I'm going to go somewhere and think about what I'm doing with my life, I think.

Oh, Kevin Witt just hit a home run. So, alright!

2006-07-12 16:54:07
23.   Bob Timmermann
Ben Hendrickson is from Minnesota, so I doubt he's related to the Dodgers Hendrickson.
2006-07-12 17:04:56
24.   DXMachina
Klinger and Honeycutt are in the crowd!

Not to mention Mrs. Hayden Fox (or young Miss Mary Stone, if'n you're old like me)

How is Ms. Fabares looking? Presumably better than she did with her old liver.

14 I lived in Toledo for a year and a half. That was thirty years ago and I still grimace when I think about it. The highlight of my time there was going to a bowling tournament and meeting Chris Schenkel. There's a reason truckers refer to Toledo as the armpit of the northeast.

25 - She's dying her hair in splashes of primary colors these days. It was... unexpected.

Kenny Rogers has a great worth ethic. Parrish is drunk.
2006-07-12 17:13:30
29.   Bob Timmermann

All of her recent credits on IMDB are voiceovers so I doubt hair color is important to her anymore. She probably just enjoys the fact that she's not dead.

Curse you Justin Leone! I was hoping for the first ever AAA All-Star game no-hitter!
2006-07-12 17:19:36
31.   DXMachina
29 - Probably true. I hadn't realized she was the voice of Martha Kent on JLA. Perhaps her time as a cartoon character is influencing her hair color choices.

Kevin Witt is bucking for that AAA All-Star MVP award?

Is it named after Ken Phelps?

2006-07-12 17:35:44
33.   Bob Timmermann
Kevin Barker still has a job! Wow!
2006-07-12 17:36:30

i sure hope this all-star game counts!

Does comment 12 really say that Joe Thurston is playing in this game?
2006-07-12 18:17:34
36.   mintxcore
Joe Thurston is a stud in MLB 2k6 for PS2!
2006-07-12 18:19:36

Super Joe is 0 for 4.

I wish there was an All Star Game every day.

There can't be. There's not enough pudding.
