All-Star streak is over…

The National League has finally ended the American League’s domination of the All-Star game by winning the All-Star Game for the first time since 1996.  The winning hit turned out to be a 3-run blast to RF from Brian McCann in the 7th inning.  Poor base-running from some familiar AL names and fantastic pitching and defense from the NL outfield kept the win.  The timely hit earned Brian the All-Star MVP. 

So which National League team do you think will end up with home field advantage?

An Era ends for the Yankees

Most of you have heard by now that Yankees owner, George Steinbrenner, has died at the age of 80 from a massive heart attack.

He really was the focus of a nation-wide Love-To-Hate relationship.  He was the anchor of one end of the spectrum of management and, love or hate him, the vacuum of his loss will rock the boat.

For those Yankee fans out there, we offer our condolences.
