Ari in Philadelphia and Gerry in Piscataway join Dave once again to look at the MLB Trade Deadline.  Who should buy and who should sell?   Did the Diamondbacks land a game-changer with J.D. Martinez?   Will Jaime Garcia be the piece the Twins need to make the playoffs?  Are the Royals over confident in trading for Trevor Cahill?   What's to come for contending teams like the Dodgers and Astros?   Did the Nationals finally get the bullpen help they needed by trading for Madson and Dolittle?  That and much more as we go into the second half of the baseball season.

Gerry and Ari re-join Dave for our MLB All Star Recap show.   We'll look at Aaron Judge's outstanding performance in the Home Run Derby, then a few thoughts on the Celebrity Softball game, and recap a very mundane 2017 All Star Game from Miami.   Afterward, we bring our First Half Recap/Second Half MLB Predictions show.  Who were the big winners and losers of the first half?  Will anyone make a run during the "dog days of sumer?"   What's to come for the trade deadline across baseball?   We'll see if the Astros, Dodgers, Brewers, Red Sox, Royals, and others are the real deal.
