  • Phil Gosselin was a part of the Braves organization before the All-Star break, was designated for assignment, and was picked up by the Angels.  Obviously they couldn’t get him an elbow guard in time as he’s still using his Braves issued one. (from Tim Phillips)
  • Here’s a look at the 2023 Seattle All-Star game logo. And a lot more information about said logo .(second item from Jake Kline).

  • The great Jon Springer (of “Mets By The Numbers”) has penned a pretty excellent post on, well, Mets numbers.
  • Kary Klismet writes, “Back in April 2020, I shared a Ticker item showing the home plate painted in the parking lot of the Denver Broncos’ stadium to commemorate where home plate used to stand in old Mile High Stadium. It was looking a little faded back then, and I just noticed that it’s recently been repainted. But whoever did it changed the orientation of home plate, so it’s now facing the wrong direction from how it faced historically.”
  • The Shazam 2 trailer dropped yesterday, with some dragon thing tearing up Phillies Citizens Bank Park. (from Michael MHP)
