2014 All-Star Week Begins!

2014-mlb-all-star-game-logo

Well baseball fans, it’s the week we’ve all been waiting for–and personally, it’s one of my favorite times of year: It’s the All-Star Break. Last year, the story-line was saying goodbye to Mariano Rivera in Queens, New York as the Mets hosted the midsummer classic. This year, the story-line is saying goodbye to Derek Jeter who is going to his 14th and final All-Star game in Minneapolis, Minnesota where the game will be played at Target Field.

However, while the game begins on Tuesday, tonight it is all about the Home Run Derby which happens to be one of my favorite events. Last year was a must watch Derby with Yoenis Cespedes putting on a laser show, but I wonder if he could pull a repeat this year. Here’s the T.V. schedule for the next few nights:

Tonight: Home Run Derby – ESPN @ 8:00 p.m.
Tomorrow: 2014 All-Star Game Red Carpet – MLB Network @ 3:00 p.m.,
2014 All-Star Game – FOX @ 7:30 p.m.

I’ll have updates on the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game throughout the week, so stay tuned ladies and gentlemen. It’s going to be a wild ride.

    Luis Severino? Peter O'Brien?

    Whilst they are a minor league prospects, they participated the game that is part of MLB All Star event. Grr!!

    Severino showed off his full repertoire. 94 mph heater, topping 96. slider and change up. I am not sure about slider but the breaking is much close to 2-8 than 12-6.

    O'Brien looked lost twice. Big wonder why he is a strikeout king.

    I was at the game last night with a good view of the Yankee dugout. I noticed that most of the Yankee players did not stay in the dugout. They came in from the field, went down the tunnel, and stayed there. Most of the alternates stayed in the clubhouse. The bench was barren. Sadly, Brian Roberts participated in this behavior. No players were up on the rail, encouraging their teammates. It was sad to see. Are the players giving up? Where is Girardi on this problem, mostly alone in the dugout?

      Just so you know, it's pretty typical for players to hangout in the clubhouse in the middle of July. It's hot and extremely humid and the best way to avoid unnecessary fatigue is for the players to spend time in the clubhouse. It certainly would be nice to have the team at the top step up the dugout, but it's hard to blame them for wanting to keep their players at 100 percent.

        The opposition behaved differently. Buck Showalter is noted for noticing players being engaged in the dugout. I was at the game, and not uncomfortable.
