Best: Shaun Marcum's hat and general appearance

I find it annoying when baseball bloggers go on and on about the way someone looks. I know John Axford has a 70s porn mustache and I realize that Brian Wilson has a crazy beard with wolverines living it and yes, Prince Fielder is a rather rotund man. Is there anything you want to add to that conversation or are you strictly stating facts about people's general appearance?

That being said, Shaun Marcum's look brings me way too much joy. He looks like Pigpen from Peanuts all grown up in a baseball uniform. The great thing about the way he looks is that you could never accuse him of not trying, if anything you want to pull him aside and tell him to take it easy. I just love him and as a guy who sweats through hats I appreciate watching a Brewer do the same.

Best: Rickie Weeks All-Star

Ryan Braun is going to be an All-Star the rest of his life. Prince Fielder might not make the All-Star team every year, but on the years he doesn't he will be on ESPN's snub list. These are facts.

Rickie Weeks might be an All-Star every year for the rest of his career or he might be one and done. It's hard to say, but it doesn't really matter because the fact of the matter is that Rickie Weeks was VOTED onto the team. Nobody at his position in his league got more votes than him and that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. As a guy who attempted an ill-fated Rickie Weeks All-Star campaign last year this makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. A supplementary Best goes to you America for making my dreams a reality. Now if you could just find me an apartment that isn't in my parent's basement.

Vince Morales is the guy who runs this site. He likes the Milwaukee Brewers, pro wrestling and beer. If he offended you he is very, very sorry.

    Brewers fans this year have the added “never say die” bonus of limited or no football this season! Enjoy major-league professional sports while it lasts in Wisconsin, because after the baseball season there won’t be another professional game played in Wisconsin until baseball season.

    (Yes, I excluded basketball on purpose)

    Off topic yet honorable mention to the worst of the first half – FSN broadcasting:

    Jerry Garcia ‘tailgate tips’ commercials: Duder – you’re a class a douche; everyone I know makes fun of you. No one is going to make any of that shit while tailgating. You come off as a narcissistic tard, seriously…haul ass.

    Telly Hughes: How in the world you got a job in broadcasting is beyond any conceivable notion. You are HORRIBLE at your job, HORRIBLE. There is only one explanation for how you’re keeping your job – and that’s because obviously, you’re the quota. Consider a new career.
