|I hate the All-Star break. No game until Friday?! The frightening potential for injuries? No thanks, I'll pass.
That said, here're a few updates on the dreaded Break haps:
No Mo: despite all the stupid rumors, Mariano will not be the starting pitcher Tuesday - surprising super-stud Cliff Lee has been given the honors. To be honest, I don't even know where that ridiculous idea came from or why anyone would think that would be a good idea, and I'm glad he won't be the starter after all.
No Rod: The Baseball Powers That Be were hoping to have the Rod be the centerpiece of tonight's derby, but no such luck for them/us. A-Dawg claims that trying to smack a buncha homers in one night would jack up his swing and inhibit his homer-hitting when he went back to real baseball, even though no such thing happened the last time he participated in the event. Methinks he's just sick of being hounded by the media and obnoxious Madonna-photo-toting haters to put up with another day in the spotlight. Hasta manana.
Not So Devilish: This year's AL East kings took a bit of a dive in the week leading up to the break, dropping 7 in a row and letting their lead over the Sox
dwindle to just half a game disappear. Too bad the Yanks didn't take advantage and win a couple more!
With no Yank to cheer for tonight, I will be crossing my fingers for Josh Hamilton. Who are you rooting for?
