Chase them all into the clubhouse
Pretend they’re not ignoring you — they’re just invisible
Party all by yourself because who needs them? Not you!
Ignore Buck Showalter

Hey, you. Did you feel that? That trembling, chaotic shift in the ground underneath your feet? Because that was the All-Star game rosters being released and the Earth groaning and creaking under the immense weight of their importance. Do you want names? Check out all the names under the cut:
Two Perfect Games, one being the first Giants Franchise History
Three No Hitters, one being the first in Mets Franchise History, one being completed by 6 pitchers
One 4-homer game
A 49 year old had won a start
Numerous 3-homer games and too many pitchers flirting with no-nos to count.
And it’s mid-June.
This may become the greatest year of baseball ever.
