that's probably because you're the only one who cares.

I have McGowan, too. I was sort of rooting for a 1-0 Yanks win.

So should we chalk last nights dugout incident as Manny being Manny or Youk being Youk? I have a feeling that if Youk didn't play for the Sox, then I'd probably hate him - sort of like Paul O'Neill.

shockingly enough, major league baseball is over-doing the advertising hype about the all star game being in new york... i know, i know... over-hype? never!

they're placing 8 foot tall replicas of the statue of liberty throughout the city painted in the team colors of all of the MLB teams. you can even buy your own mini replica... yay!





classy

The Boston Red Sox logos wrapped around a mini-replica of the Statue of Liberty.

Yankee fans must be in shock.

Yeah they're probably over-hyping it, but it would definitely be an amazing experience to go to this year's All-Star game at Yankee Stadium in its last year of existence. I know I would love to be there.

Apparently some Red Sox, Manny included, don't like Youkilis's habit of throwing stuff in the dugout after a poor at-bat.

I can see how it would get annoying quickly, but I have a hard time really getting upset about Youkilis's attitude. He's not being selfish and focusing on his stats, he's just a perfectionist who wants every at-bat to be perfect.

They're all grown adults in the dugout, so I'm pretty sure it'll be resolved quickly.

Man, what a lineup the Sox have without Manny or Ortiz.

Yeah, I watch Youkilis go berserk after an at-bat when the Red Sox have a big lead and I start to hate the guy. He is most definitely your version of O'Neill.

would be nice and all... i think i'd rather go to the home run derby... but the cheepest single ticket on stubhub for a bleacher seat, which of course is normaly the cheapest seat in the house? $311 bucks. cheapest ticket for the all star game it's self is $599 bucks.

i think i'll watch from home.

75% chance I'll be at the All-Star Game. Pulled every string I could at work and it's looking semi-promising. Cannot think of a better Father's Day Gift than to tell my Dad that I'm taking him to the All-Star game at Yankee Stadium.

Hell yeah, that would be a beautiful Father's Day gift.

Or, of course, you could get one extra ticket and take both me AND your Dad to the All-Star game...
