Daniel Kramer | MLB.com: It leaked a few days ago, but it was officially announced Thursday that Seattle will host the 2023 All-Star Game. Seattle last hosted the All-Star Game in 2001. Next year’s Midsummer Classic will take place at Dodger Stadium.
Matt Collins | Over the Monster: Hunter Renfroe is garnering a reputation for his cannon-like arm, but according to DRS and OAA, the outfielder has been a liability. Renfroe graded as fine previously and defensive stats are inherently volatile, so what are we to make of Renfroe’s defense?
Jonathan Judge | Baseball Prospectus $: Some teams are acting as if money is the reason they’re not competitive even though every organization is worth a billion dollars and there’s a soft salary cap. To rectify this, why not instate a salary pool and pay players based on performance?
The Orioles walked off the Yankees in a wet and wild 10th inning.
