Also, MLB will apparently announce the All Star team rosters in about an hour and a half. I predicted that Evan Longoria, Dioner Navarro, and Scott Kazmir would make it earlier this week, so let’s see what happens.

  1. Man, I’ve been seriously thinking about dropping my Manny Collection. I’ll probably post about it soon…

    I’ve been leaning towards Aki and Rick Ankiel. I love watching both guys play this year and I’m quickly becoming a fan of both…

  2. I saw this cover today too…I was really hoping Sonnanstine and his awesome beard would be there too, oh well.

  3. JV, Aki’s a good choice except that the prices of some of his cards on eBay are driven up by Japanese fans bidding on them. He is a great player to watch though. I’m amazed by how quickly he mastered second base.
