Hello baseball fans, and welcome back to another edition of the Rosterbatorical, the official MLB Daily Dish podcast. Chris and Matt are back once again to talk about what's happening in the world of baseball. This week, other sports has infiltrated their discussion. First, the guys talk about the Kevin Durant news that is taking the basketball world by storm, and just what that might look like in the baseball world.

Then Chris brings a question to the table: What if the MLB had a franchise tag like the NFL? What would that look like in a league with no real hard salary cap. The guys explore this possibility and talk about which teams might be more inclined to use it.

Following the break, trivia returns and it's all about All-Star David Ortiz, who is in his final season. Chris tries to stump Matt for the first time since this segment started. Finally, they break down the All-Star Game rosters, potential snubs and who they think should be the starting pitcher for both sides. It is a jam-packed and fun filled episode.
