Different kind of framing: Yadier Molina takes picture of Nelson Cruz with umpire prior to at-bat

It's a kodak moment at the MLB All Star Game It's a kodak moment at the MLB All Star Game

The MLB All-Star Game is officially way better when it doesn't count.

In the top of the sixth inning, Mariners DH Nelson Cruz chose to use the opportunity to get a picture with home plate umpire Joe West.

In the top of the sixth, Cruz brought his phone with him to the plate and had Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina take a photo of him and home plate umpire Joe West, who had recently umpired his 5,000th game.

Given the more relaxed atmosphere with the All-Star Game no longer counting for homefield advantage in the World Series, Cruz decided he had another opportunity. That's good; he probably has all Joe West's country albums saved on there.

Rather, the company will overcompensate with "extra features " for the camera side of the phone, which we are looking forward to. We gathered all the available Pixel 2 information circulating on the Internet and here's what we learned so far about the phone.

But Kimbrel got the New York Mets' Michael Conforto to strike out swinging, and the All-Star Game went to a 10th inning for the first time since 2008.

According to the Seattle Times, Cruz and West have had a chummy on-field relationship since a baserunning play that took place in 2006, when Cruz was just beginning his Major League Baseball career with the Rangers. "The second time, I left my phone on the bench because I played defense and I got on base, walk, and I forgot my cell phone that time".

"He's a legend", Cruz said. "That stuck in my mind".

Nelson Cruz is just really passionate about his Insta game, apparently.
