CoverAre you longing for a baseball fix now that the All Star Game is over and the season doesn’t resume for two more days? If you’re like me (meaning you have six or more baseball-related apps on your smartphone), this is the most difficult time of the year (only because we can distract ourselves with less interesting sports like basketball, football and hockey during the offseason).

But don’t fret. When you get home from work today, bust out a cold one, kick back and read Cobalt’s second-annual baseball issue.
