As Oscar-caliber performances go, it wasn’t quite Vince Coleman asking the child he threw an M-80 at if they could be friends, but it’ll do.

As long as Rogers’ suspension is under appeal, I see no reason why he shouldn’t pitch for the AL in the All-Star Game. I had presumed selection for the squad was based on what a player had done between the lines (and you’ll note that the dimutive camera that Kenny knocked to the ground was standing in foul territory).
