Yoenis Cespedes edged Bryce Harper in the Home Run Derby last night. The Oakland youngster certainly planted himself on the national map with his outstanding performance at Citi Field.
Last night’s festivities certainly provided plenty of enjoyment for people, but Matt Harvey taking the hill tonight means so much for a Mets fan base that has not had much to cheer about lately. Harvey’s first All-Star Game appearance ironically coincides with Mariano Rivera’s final All-Star appearance.
Terry Collins spoke to the media yesterday and, among other things, addressed the Jordany Valdespin situation. The Mets’ manager said he thought Valdy called him a “cockroach.” This sparked “The” Eddie Scozzare to put on a drop clinic for all of our amusement.
Metta World Peace signed with the Knicks yesterday and his first interview did not disappoint. This audio has to be heard to be believed … classic.
