All Star Game
Cano took the jeering in stride during Monday’s Home Run Derby. But after the National League’s 8-0 victory Tuesday night, the second baseman said some fans crossed the line.
Major League Baseball could start in-season testing for human growth hormone next year.
By the time the yelling and screaming subsides sometime around the Friday’s regular season restart, you’ll think letting Matt Cain pitch the first three innings was something akin to Tony La Russa punching R.A. Dickey in the throat.
Owner of the best record in baseball, R.A. Dickey was hoping to become the first knuckleballer to start an All-Star game since Dutch Leonard in 1943. A 12-1 record wasn’t good enough.
Fans in Kansas City showed Robinson Cano how a Bronx cheer is really done on Monday night.
In the year of Linsanity and Tebow-mania, Dickey has been one of the best stories in New York sports — not to mention MLB. But he won’t get the ball to start the All-Star game.
Just as they did in 1973 when the All-Star Game was last played at a newly-opened Royals Stadium, the Mets will send two players to this year’s mid-summer classic in Kansas City.
Dickey’s shaky outing Thursday night may give manager Tony La Russa, already worried about who will catch the Mets’ knuckleballer, reason to pass him over.
Those who want desperately to hang onto the commoner vote will say it’s all the Mets fans’ fault. They didn’t come out for David Wright like they should have. They’d be correct, too.
Despite a healthy lead last week, David Wright finished second in the All-Star fan balloting at third base — a whopping 1,610,162 votes behind San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval.
The Dynamic Radio Duo also shared their thoughts on David Wright not being voted as an NL All-Star starter, an injustice in Craig’s eyes based on the fact he held nearly a 400,000 vote lead on Thursday.
When you are the best pitcher in baseball, deductive reasoning says you are also the best pitcher in the National League. When you are the best pitcher in the National League, you should start the All-Star Game.
Former big-league pitcher and current analyst for the MLB on TBS, David Wells joined Craig via the hotline to talk some local hardball.
Managers Terry Collins of the Mets and Ron Roenicke of the Brewers will serve as NL coaches for the All-Star game and managers Ned Yost of the Royals and Bob Melvin of the A’s will coach on the AL side.
Two World Series titles and nearly 50 years later, the Midsummer Classic is coming back to Queens.
