So I made it through all of one inning of last night’s game between the MLB All-Stars and the Japan Samurai (I’m getting old) – long enough to see Robinson Cano sting a hard single through the 5.5 hole into left field. But the MLB all-stars didn’t manage much offense against Japan’s starter Kenta Maeda in a 2-0 loss.  Maeda allowed just two hits in five shutout innings – Cano’s single and a double from Dexter Fowler in the fifth inning.

Cano finished 1-for-4 and gave the Mariners a mild scare with this play.

Here’s the box score.

The teams will have a travel day to get from Osaka to Tokyo. They will resume the games on Friday night with Mariners’ right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma getting the start in the game.

The BBWAA announced their manager of the year awards on Wednesday. And while Lloyd McClendon was not one of three finalists, he did finish fourth overall – receiving a total of 29 points. Those points came from nine third place votes, five second place votes and one first place vote.

Here’s the voting breakdown 

In other news …. 

**** This isn’t entirely surprising since they looked at Nick Franklin a little last season, but the Mets, who desperately need a shortstop, are looking at Brad Miller and Chris Taylor as possible trade targets.  It seems likely that one of those players may be traded.

**** In Arizona Fall League action, Patrick Kivlehan went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Suprise’s 5-1 win over Mesa — Box score

**** Congrats to Alex Gordon on being named the Hutch Award winner for 2014. Felix Hernandez was also a finalist for the award.

****  Jerry Crasnick polled GMs, assistant GMs and scouts about some Hot Stove questions — always interesting stuff.

**** MLB Trade rumors does some payroll projections and obligations.

And finally

I was back on the radio with Jason Puckett and Ian Furness talking about the Hot Stove stuff. Here’s a podcast.
