Kenny's In

I will not let Kenny Rogers ruin Bondermania. I can't really blame "The Gambler" for choosing to go to the All-Star game. It's baseball's most prolific spectacle. Plus, it's in Detroit. I haven't met anyone who'd willingly pass up a trip to Detroit. However, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping that the home town fans would let him hear it for keeping Bonderman off of the team. I think that it's reasonable to think that 2 beat up cameraman should not equal 1 All-Star game appearance. That's fuzzy math.

However, since Bonderman won't be making an appearance, this will allow him to keep his scheduled start against the Royals on Thursday. A win would give Bonderman 12 wins one day after the All-Star break leaving him in good position to make a run at 20. To be honest, I'd rather have Bonderman win 20 and NOT make the All-Star team than make the team and NOT win 20 games. Maybe this one game against the Royals will be the difference.

Detroit sports fans are some of the most intelligent around. Don't worry, I'm sure Kenny will hear it from the crowd tomorrow night. Well deserved too.
