Feeling hungry? How about a personalized restaurant recommendation from a bot that knows exactly what you want? It sounds futuristic, but Foursquare is releasing an app called Marsbot that learns what you like to eat and when you like to eat, and sends you recommendations based on that. It’s like OpenTable meets a particularly smart Siri. Unfortunately, Marsbot is still in the testing stages so we won’t be able to find that perfect taco spot without lifting a finger for a little while longer.

Olive Garden is kicking off the summer season with new menu offerings and a summer-long celebration bringing together its fans from across the country. New to the menu are Meatball Deep Dish Spaghetti Pie, Chicken Alfredo Deep Dish Spaghetti Pie, and Spaghetti Rosso with Chicken & Bacon. The Spaghetti Pies are made with spaghetti, seven cheeses, and Italian bacon, all baked in a flaky crust. Olive Garden is kicking off a Never Ending Family Table summer celebration in New York City, in which guests in different cities will have the opportunity to gather and try out the new offerings.

Germany’s Autobahn is famed for its lack of speed limits, but traffic was recently brought to a standstill by a massive beer spill across all three lanes of the motorway. Thousands of bottles of beer smashed across the highway. Nobody was injured, but the cleanup took hours and traffic was stopped across all three lanes for the duration.

That’s todays Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop back tomorrow for another helping.

Good morning baseball fans!

Julio Urias made his major league debut last Friday, at the young age of 19. He isn't the first to make his debut that young and Jen Mac Ramos of Beyond the Box Score compared Urias' start with others that debuted at 19.

David Wright has a herniated disk in his neck, and the disabled-list is a realistic possibility.

ESPN released their latest power rankings, and no surprise the Cubs still find themselves in the top spot.

If the White Sox and Padres are able to make a deal, James Shields would make perfect sense for Chicago.

Still, Shields’ ERA is 24 percent better than the league average when accounting for league and park effects. His ground-ball percentage is the 38th highest out of the 103 pitchers who have thrown a minimum of one inning per team game, according to STATS LLC. His home-run rate, tied for the 47th-lowest, is also better than league average.

Shields’ career patterns are similar in both statistics he isn’t exactly a ground-ball machine, but he’s not a fly-ball pitcher, either. So, when considering the other right-handed starters who might become available before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, he figures to be at or near the top of the list.

If the Braves were to move Julio Teheran, they would need to be overwhelmed.

Matt Carpenter has made a habit out of taking the first pitch of every game.

Without any swings, Carpenter’s fallen behind in the count 26 times in 42 leadoff plate appearances (62%). In his other 162 plate appearances, he’s only fallen behind 74 times (46%). Despite falling behind in the count in his leadoff plate appearances more often than he’s gotten ahead, though, his .817 OPS in leadoff at-bats is still above-average relative to the league, though it’s below his overall 2016 production (.884 OPS), and well below last year’s production in first-inning leadoff at-bats (.961).

Carpenter is a great hitter, and he has been a great hitter, and this is clearly a conscious choice — you don’t take 42 consecutive first pitches, most of them fastballs, on accident — so I’d like to give him the benefit of the doubt. But it certainly is curious, and it seems like something that could eventually be exploited the longer it goes on, if it hasn’t started already.
