A-Rod may skip All-Star Game

Game 86: Bartday!
Nova, Betances dominate for SWB and Trenton

Via George King, there’s a chance Alex Rodriguez will skip the All-Star Game next week to give his ailing right knee some rest. It’s been bothering him for at least two weeks now, though Alex did tell King that it’s “getting better.” A-Rod was voted as the starting third baseman for the All-Star Game and deservedly so; he leads all big league third baseman with 4.1 fWAR and 3.3 bWAR. As great as it would be to see a bunch of Yankees in the All-Star Game, I’d rather them stay home and get healthy.

    I think they should all skip it and take a breather. I have almost no interest in that game already, last thing I want to see is a Yankee getting hurt in it.

    I like the ASG, but Alex should totally skip it. The AL’s lost a lot of fire power in the rotation, as has the NL. They’re going to be digging deep this time out.

    He sure isn’t hitting like he’s bothered by an injury. Personally, I think ALL the players should skip this All-Star Game, to show up the bigots running Arizona. Did they learn nothing from getting stripped of the Super Bowl until they approved the Dr. King holiday?

      I can’t wait to watch the Home Run Derby in Arizona.

      My money is on Prince Fielder’s NL team winning it by acclimation after the AL team of Ortiz, Cano, Gonzalez, and Bautista are all arrested while driving around Phoenix Monday afternoon.

      RAB Administrators, hello? How about some reinforcement of non-political rhetoric. Especially stupid & bigoted language…

      Are there any rules here or do you approve of all left wing nonsense ignorance? Do you approve of these opinions? Cause I’m getting tired of reading a comments section that resembles a HuffPo article.

      P.S. To Uncle Mike & tsjc- Apparently, both of you can’t read or comprehend basic English grammar. The so-called controversial Arizona immigration Law says clearly, authorities can’t arrest due to racial profiling.

      Here’s a simple question? Why do you race-baiting idiots think illegal immigration is such a big issue? Maybe because all of us legal citizens have to follow the law and are lawfully required to carry documents proving it. All of us- every race, gender and creed.

      For some reason- you dopes can’t handle individuals who break the federal law and let them face the deserving punishment- without screaming the pathetically outdated Racist card.

      You guys better get off your high horse, Americans are not being intimidated anymore with your bullying and hateful rhetoric.

      Plus, maybe you should live near the border, where plenty of legal citizens have to face the highly dangerous situations of illegal and dangerous activities being played out violently in their backyard.

      Now, carry on the Alex All Star Debate held in the great state of Arizona, America will be watching. Hope you will, too.

      wow, plenty of people can’t read on this site.

    A-Rod may skip All-Star Game

    That makes two of us.

      I’m on vacation next week, with no television access. Weee.

  • Guns of the Navarone

    Pass this sentiment along to Russell Martin.

  • Adam B

    I agree completely

  • wow

    they should all skip the friggin’ game.

  • http://none Favrest

    Arod, Martin, Jete and Mariano all have good reason to skip it. Also the part about it sucking is always another reason.

  • Jonathan Harker

    A-Rod most of all needs to skip. He needs the rest. Jeter is just coming off the calf injury, he should skip. Rivera also coming off injury should skip. Cano we know is going, Martin going and that’s good enough.

    • Karl Krawfid

      Martin should be removed for sucking.

      • El Anonimo

        Blame Ron Washington

  • Dino Velvet

    doesn’t matter.

    home field advantage in the post season is irrelevant.

  • Foghorn Leghorn

    the all star game is about as exciting as watching old people screw.
