MLB: American League at National League Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

J.T. Realmuto homered last night in the All-Star Game, the first Phillies player to hit one in the event since Mike Schmidt.

Pretty entertaining game. The best thing about the entire telecast was MLB clearly pushing the young stars that are taking over the game. Ohtani, Tatis, Vladito were all prominently featured and with good reason. They have been the talk of the first half and deservedly should have gotten all of the publicity.

But let’s get back to Realmuto. His home run broke up the American League shutout and showed people who didn’t already know why he is the best catcher in baseball.

On to the links.
