John Farrell has a higher approval rating than George Washington, Mother Theresa, Gandhi and Santa Claus

Not sure why anyone wants to do public opinion polling about baseball managers, but this is fun all the same:

 

Fackin’ Gandhi. Fackin’ Washington. Fackin’ Ma Theresa and Santa. Don’t ask me why I wicked hate those guys. They know what they fackin’ did.

Trevor Story homers off of Charlie Morton, All-Star Game tied at two after seven

There was a whole lot of nothing happening in the All-Star Game after Willson Contreras‘ homer in the bottom of the third. We saw a lot of 98 m.p.h. pitches, a handful of walks and a near total lack of balls in play and/or defensive excitement for three and a half innings. In short: it was classic late 20-teens baseball. The most exciting thing that happened during that span was a trade that everyone knew was happening, even if they didn’t know when it would actually go down.

That changed in the bottom of the seventh when, with Charlie Morton of the Astros on the mound, Rockies shortstop Trevor Story socked one out to left field. There hasn’t been a lot of action tonight, but the action that has gone down has gone down in the left field stands.

It’s 2-2 as we head to the eighth inning.
