Just because someone is an All-Star in the eyes of Major League Baseball doesn’t mean you need or want them on your fantasy baseball roster. In fact, it’s mostly irrelevant to smart fantasy owners. By looking the hitters and pitchers in line for the big honor this week, you can find assets you have that other clueless owners might want in a trade. Think about how to exploit that weakness in your fantasy baseball league this weekend.
When Jeter announced he would retire at the end of the season, I began asking those around the game for their favorite stories. Here is what they told me.
David Ortiz hit his 450th homer, a colossal three-run drive, and Dustin Pedroia had three RBIs during his second consecutive three-hit game to lead the Boston Red Sox over the New York Yankees 8-5 Sunday night.
Mo admires Dustin Pedroia for his determination, all-out hustle and will to win. You know, all the things lacking at times in former Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano.
Yankees captain Derek Jeter is getting a day off to rest and Boston star Dustin Pedroia is getting a fresh start in the leadoff spot.
CBS Local Sports breaks down the top players at second base for your fantasy baseball draft.

“Well, we love playing here at Busch Stadium. Like I said, it’s a sea of red,” pitcher Joe Kelly said as the World Series shifts to St. Louis.

Watch the replay and draw your own conclusions with your own eyes. There’s plenty to see. You can learn a lot about baseball and the nuances of baseball by watching this play.
The Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox have never previously met in the playoffs. Both teams are led by super sluggers in Miguel Cabrera and David Ortiz.
One ball fell between two outfielders. Another took a bad hop off the Green Monster standings. One batter reached safely on a dropped third strike and another when the pitcher was slow to cover first.
The famous Yankee Stadium ghosts, responsible for so many Yankees wins over the Red Sox over the years, did not finish the job last night.
