The Dead Zone in Philly sports

We are in the Dead Zone in Philly sports.

Remember when the baseball All-Star Game was a big deal. I had to remind myself the Mid-Summer Classic was actually being played last night.

Does that have something to do with the Phillies holding the worst record in Major League Baseball? Sure, and unless you get a big kick out of seeing someone named Pat Neshek pitch a scoreless second inning, there wasn't much to cheer about, regardless if you are a Phillies fan or not.

The American League eventually won 2-1 on a walk-off homer by Robinson Cano in the 10th inning.

Count on Neshek to be one of the prized items the Phillies dangle out there as the trade deadline approaches.

That is what stands for excitement these days in Philly sports.

The Sixers continue their Summer League program, albeit without Markelle Fultz, who is this year's requisite Sixers Summer League casualty.

The Eagles wide receivers are in North Dakota practicing with Carson Wentz.

Training camp can't get here soon enough.
