All-Star Wrap-Up

first_imgHow many of you watched the All-Star Game and the Home Run Derby?  As I pointed out earlier, I checked occasionally to see who was leading in the Home Run Derby.  I did the same with the All-Star Game.  Unfortunately, my doubts about the strategy that the National League managers would use came true early.  They insist on using their starting pitcher for more than one inning, and what has been a reoccurring theme came true again.  Cueto gave up 3 runs in his second inning of work, and the game was over.  Unfortunately, the American League will have home field advantage in the World Series again.last_img
