Following Sunday’s announcement of the reserve players for the 2024 MLB All-Star Game, the only question still left to be answered is who the two players are that will take the mound for their respective teams. While there are some good options in the American League, it’s the National League that has generated quite a bit of debate.

Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman discuss why Pittsburgh Pirates ace Paul Skenes is the obvious choice for many to start the game; however, having only made 10 MLB starts, that left the door open for a more deserving veteran to be selected. They also wonder if Garrett Crochet playing for the Chicago White Sox will hurt his chances of earning the AL opener nod.

Also on this episode of Baseball Bar-B-Cast, the guys talk about the immediate impact Rece Hinds has had on the Cincinnati Reds, credit Ben Cherington for sticking with Rowdy Tellez after his rough start to the season, and which New York Yankees hitter will have the highest OPS the rest of the season after Aaron Judge and Juan Soto.

Jake and Jordan then go around the league discussing the All-Star Game replacements of Jordan Westburg and Hunter Greene, the New York Mets’ trade of Phil Maton, the door of opportunity being opened for the Boston Red Sox, and the latest news surrounding Wander Franco.
