The first-inning double was one of Derek Jeter’s classic, opposite-field line drives to right. OK, so maybe NL starter Adam Wainwright admitted he threw something juicy to hit.
Helping send Derek Jeter out a winner in his last All-Star game appearance, Mike Trout drove in two runs with a triple and a double to lead the American League past the National League 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Derek Jeter had two hits and scored one run in two at-bats by the middle of the All-Star Game Tuesday evening, after he was honored by both the American and National leagues in the midst of his final season.
I thought I would round out this discussion by choosing all-time teams: one comprised solely of Yankees and the other with players from the New York Giants, Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Mets.
This is a follow-up from my previous column, where the question under consideration was: Is New York an American League city or a National League city?
Gabe Costa takes an approach which is both subjective and qualitative. He takes a look at both temporal (historical) and spatial (geographical) aspects of this issue in Part 1.

“I think now we’re entering a new phase where the short-term becomes somewhat more important than the long-term,” Alderson said. “And that’s how we’re going to go at it.”
The Arizona Fall League is usually host to minor-league prospects — not the faces of big-league pitching staffs. But pitching in the AFL would give the 24-year-old the opportunity to face live hitters.
A lot of people are criticizing Matt Harvey for choosing to delay possible surgery on his ailing right elbow. His manager, however, isn’t one of them.
The seven-time All-Star ran the bases last week and took live batting practice for the first time this past Saturday. He has a chance to play against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park this weekend.
The Mets traded right fielder Marlon Byrd, catcher John Buck and cash to the Pirates for minor league middle infielder Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later.
Cy Young? Maybe, maybe not. But Hiroki Kuroda has pitched well enough to dream. And Matt Harvey’s season speaks for itself. It would be nice if the year ended with a little positive history.
