The Rosterbatorical Episode 37: All-Star break and midseason awards

The latest edition of the Rosterbatorical, the official MLB Daily Dish podcast.

MLB: All Star Game Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Hello baseball fans, and welcome back to another edition of The Rosterbatorical, the official MLB Daily Dish podcast. Matt and Chris are back with a special All-Star break edition of the show. They open by breaking down the All-Star Game, a game that Chris didn't watch. He explains himself and proposes a new way for the MLB to select All-Stars.

Then both guys give their midseason awards out: Rookie of the Year, Cy Young and MVP for both leagues.

Finally, a rather interesting story closes the show. Banned pitcher Jenrry Mejia is planning on suing MLB and during a press conference today plans to reveal years of 'corrupt, mob-like activity' inside major league baseball. It is certainly a story that both guys are keeping their eyes on.

You can listen to the show through the player below, or download it here.
