Miguel Cabrera gave up All-Star Game at-bat to help Eric Hosmer's MVP bid

Miguel Cabrera gave up All-Star Game at-bat to help Eric Hosmer's MVP bid

For him to do that says a lot about his character and really stands out to me. When American League All-Star manager Ned Yost turned to Miguel Cabrera and asked him to pinch-hit for Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer in sixth inning Tuesday, the Detroit Tigers star politely declined.  "Hosmer has a chance to be the MVP; give him one more at-bat," Cabrera told Yost, according to ESPN. Hosmer grounded out and Cabrera entered in the seventh as a defensive replacement. He struck out in his only at-bat in the eighth inning. Hosmer ended up winning the MVP...

The All-Star Game was anti-fun

Eduardo Nunez didn’t even get to bat! What gives!? The 2016 All-Star Game was played last night in San Diego. The American League beat the National League 4-2. Eric Hosmer hit a home run and won MVP. David Ortiz retired. People talked about David Ortiz retiring. Blah, blah, blah. You can read the full run-down of the actual game here. But here’s the gist: the All-Star Game was no fun. Eduardo Nunez barely got to play! He was a defensive substitution in the 9th inning and helped turn a sick double play, but that’s it. He didn’t even get a chance to wear a batting helmet! And the...

Johnny Cueto hit hard, Giants to open World Series on the road

Buster Posey scored a run, though, so it wasn't all bad. The good news is that Johnny Cueto really is a true Giant. The right-hander renewed the troubled franchise history of pitchers in the All-Star Game, giving up two home runs to different Royals and taking the loss as the American League won the 2016 All-Star Game, 4-2. Cueto was feeling a little barfy, apparently, but he pitched a scoreless bottom of the first. In the second inning, though, Eric Hosmer hit a home run, Mookie Betts lined a single up the middle, and Salvador Perez followed with a long homer to left. Just the thought of...
