Alternate baseball programming over the All-Star break

With the All-Star Break just about upon us, if you are like me, you may be wondering what baseball you can watch when the events in Kansas City are quiet. The key happenings include Sunday’s Futures Game, the Home Run Derby on Monday, and Tuesday’s All-Star Game followed by Wednesday’s day off.

The Royals are hosts for the festivities, with Kansas City’s ties to the St. Louis Cardinals considerable. One such link is between FOX Sports Kansas City and FOX Sports Midwest.

The former has planned over three days of special baseball programming scheduled around the All-Star events. A number of these programs have direct or indirect connections to the Cardinals.

All of the following, initiated from FOX Sports Kansas City, will also be simulcast on FOX Sports Midwest.

    Browning’s record of perfection is maintained today.

  2. WesPowell says:

    I’m kinda picky about the term “perfect.”

    Perfect would be 3 pitches, all strikes. with not even a foul ball, for a strikeout to every batter you face.

    For example a real PERFECT game would be 81 pitches and 27 strikeouts.

  3. WesPowell says:

    MY GOSH OUR GUYS HAVE, i MUST SAY IT, BALLS.

  4. WesPowell says:

    The walk Danny D. drew was classic.

  5. WesPowell says:

    Even the one game the Marlins took, we were rallying like heck at the end.

    • JumboShrimp says:

      The Marlins soap opera continues. Pricey closer Heath Bell surrenders another loss.

      The Cards end the pre-ASG session with a couple of wins. Good. They should prevail at home against a team like the Marlins. We will soon be re-inforced by return of Lance Berkman. We need help.

      Excellent job by Joe Kelly, 6 IP, no earned runs.

  6. WesPowell says:

    They were 2 HUGE wins before the break. The Pirates and Reds are winning as they close too.

  7. JumboShrimp says:

    It is said the Cards are kicking the tires on LHP Brian Fuentes, who Mo and TLR were hot after in 2008. Fuentes is now 36 and has not had a good season for the As, so might not cost much in prospects. We could go with a trio Rzep, Fuentes, and perfect Browning.
