You lose Matt Harvey and David Wright to injuries and you trade away Marlon Byrd and this is what ESPN is left with to promote your team for Sunday Night Baseball:

 

Still, it’ll be a good game because it’s baseball and baseball is almost always a good game.  There are so many variables which go into it that star power is not a necessary component of it. That’s what people who always wonder why MLB isn’t marketed like the NBA or whatever.

The Mets, while certainly not a good team at the moment, are capable of beating anyone on any given night because that’s just how baseball rolls. Even if Eric Young, Jr. is your biggest name.

Not much has changed with the All-Star voting in the National League this week. All of the same leaders from last week are leading this week. Matt Kemp and Bryce Harper have flip-flopped at 2-3 in the outfield voting but it’s still all the same.

Buster Posey leads at catcher, first base is Freddie Freeman, second is his Braves teammate Ozzie Albies, third is Nolan Arenado, short is Brandon Crawford and Nick Markakis leads the outfield trio.
