All-Star Snooze on OVERTIME

If you wanted to watch a thrilling, heart-pumping sporting event this past couple of days then I hope you didn’t watch the 2009 MLB All-Star Break. I’m not sure at the moment which event was more boring, the tedious Home Run Derby or the tiresome All-Star game.

If you wanted to watch a thrilling, heart-pumping sporting event this past couple of days then I hope you didn’t watch the 2009 MLB All-Star Break. I’m not sure at the moment which event was more boring, the tedious Home Run Derby or the tiresome All-Star game.

The Home Run Derby went three plus excruciating hours and the All-Star game lacked the spunk and excitement that is expected to be seen from the best players in the game.

Were the American League Home Run Derby representatives really Nelson Cruz, Brandon Inge, Carlos Pena, and Joe Mauer? This is the short list of the best sluggers the AL has to offer? Wow MLB, you’ve really peaked my interest to tune into the contest.

If I weren’t an avid baseball fan I would have no clue who Nelson Cruz is and since when do Brandon Inge and Joe Mauer hit for power? Sure these players are having nice first halves, but I want to see players like Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez and Jermaine Dye compete.
