Brett Gardner has a chance to be the "Final Man" on the AL All-Star team but don't expect the team to be making a lot of noise. Unlike in 2010 (when the club sent interns to photobomb the "Today Show" on behalf of Nick Swisher) or 2013 (when they campaigned around #HighScocksForVotes for David Robertson) this will be a "toned-down" campaign.

NBA 

Insider Amin Elhassan is concerned LeBron James wants to help his agent/friend Rich Paul on Tristan Thompson's deal more than he is with filling out the Cavs with the best talent. “He’s earned the right to have the power to say, ‘Let’s get the best team on the floor that we can.’ But if it’s because I want my agent, I want our side business, our side hustle to be happy, he’s overstepping his bounds.” Listen to Ryan Russillo Show
