the 2027 all-star roster

Manny Ramirez Jr. and D'Angelo Ortiz (projected contest winners, 2028 and 2031, respectively) watch the Home Run Derby:



We've previously discussed the Papelblog's suspicion that D'Angelo Ortiz is the result of an experiment conducted by Theo to combine Papi and Manny's DNA, but I didn't realize that D'Angelo is actually version 2.0.

Baseball resumes in slightly less than 10 hours, thank Christ. Although it was almost worth the three-day break to see Jorge Posada catch Jonathan Papelbon in the All Star Game and be so apparently flustered trying to catch a pitcher who wasn't trying to blow the game while close and late, walk in the winning run, etcetera that he was charged with a passed ball. Almost.

well, they look alike in that they are both ADORABLE little boys, but i def think they have v. different facial features. i also think both of them look like their respective fathers--just a matter of opinion. but an ortiz / ramirez DNA splice is something i'd be in favor of as well.

Rex and I will be in section 37 tomorrow, row 2, seats 21-22, in case you want to stop by and say hello. There's a pic of us from a game last year on Rex's blog at

for help in spotting us. This will be his first trip to Fenway--he's very excited.
