OSS: Hendricks comes through in the biggest PA of the game, but the Marlins manage a big inning anyway. Three up 1.

I voted for Giancarlo Stanton 35 times on my All-Star Game ballot. Then he ate a KitKat Bar wrong. The monster!

I made a joke on Facebook the other day about how #VoteDrew, the hashtag to elect Stephen Drew to MLB's All-Star Game, was the saddest hashtag ever. Then it got me to thinking about who I would vote for on my All-Star ballot. Obviously, I voted my maximum 35 times for my main email address for Alex Rodriguez (and Mark Teixeira and Jacoby Ellsbury), and I also gave my votes to Yadier...

Ichiro sees himself in Marlins teammate Dee Gordon

Ichiro Suzuki has consistently been one of baseball's best hitters in his 14-plus years in MLB, so his recent comments about teammate Dee Gordon should be relished by the Miami Marlins second baseman. "You take a look at him, and he's 5-11, 170, just like I am," Suzuki said, per the Miami Herald. "And he uses his legs a lot to get hits. You can say we're the same type of players...

Giancarlo Stanton gets called out for breaking KitKat etiquette

Dee Gordon is good people. The Marlins second baseman did the right thing Monday afternoon by KitKat shaming teammate Giancarlo Stanton on Twitter. As a society, there are certain rules we have to live by. One of those is pretty simple: When you eat a delicious KitKat, you break the pieces off and then shove them in your mouth one by one. But look at savagery performed by Stanton...
