Indeed, Spahnie himself said it years later, in this 1999 interview:
"Baseball has (since) made non-athletes out of pitchers, unfortunately,” Spahn said in July of 1999. “Why would I want my son to be a pitcher … when you pitch once a week, they count the pitches and you don’t get to hit and you don’t get to run the bases.”


And a fine hitter he was, possibly the best hitting pitcher to ever play the game. Spahn hit 35 lifetime homeruns, and hit at least one per season for 17 straight years from 1948 thru 1964 (when he was 43 years old)

All-Star Teams:

As it happens every year, certain deserving players get left off. Subjective of course but a few really puzzled me:

Konerko

Votto

Youkalis

Hopefully, that write-in thing will address a couple of those.






You hit upon the problem. They are all 1st basemen. There are many 1st basemen who have had good seasons so far.


Playing for one of the managers can help, thus Ryan Howard goes and Votto stays home.



Votto is one of the 5 on the fan ballot. IMO, he should win that.


no, because it's the all-star game not the all-stats game for a half season


Hey DanB, have a few more drinks so you can be a complete ass.


How's that being an ass? It's a simple statement about an exhibition game in which the fans vote. Votto is having a good 1st half but it's more of popularity contest unless you're Omar Infante.

Kevin Youkilis left the game with an ankle injury last night. So at that point, 5 of the 9 guys on the field last night were not on the Red Sox opening day roster. Drew, Beltre, Scuturro, Cameron the only starters left (plus Ortiz at DH, who was intentionally walked 3 times in key situations to get at Youk's rookie replacement, some guy named Niuman Romero, who made an out each time including the last out of the game). Un-freakin-believeable.

Globe says Youk is ok...took a ball off the ankle playing the field and it "locked up" on during his next at bat. Says he'll play tonight so hopefully it is nothing.

Beckett scheduled for first rehab start for Pawtucket Sunday, and then will have a 2nd and if all goes well would return to the Sox around July 21.

Sox have a 3 game losing streak going, losing ground to yanks and Rays. Wakefield vs. Price tonight means there's a pretty good chance it will become a 4 game losing streak. Dog days of summer are here.

If they cared enough to get into shape, half these "injuries" wouldn't be happening -- many ex-ballplayers have said in recent years that when they played, w/tougher travel conditions etc., no one ever heard of an oblique, a quadricep, hip flexor or rotator cuff -- "strains" were not a reason to not play, much less go on the DL -- they simply got into shape because they had to & it's how they played at their best -- some of the injuries today are legitimate yes, but most of them aren't

whatever happened to Jacoby Ellsbury? I know he had that collision -- coming back anytime after the allstar break?

Go Sox -- most ballplayers today are sissies IMO, but it doesn't mean I don't root for the Sox

Most of the injuries have been impact injuries, like collisions with other players or being hit by a thrown or batted ball. That's what makes it so infuriating, they have been the "freak" injuries, just coincidence I think that the Sox have had a bunch at once.

Did anyone vote for the final player for each All-Star team? I'm fairly certain Youkilis and Votto will be the winners.

Here in Chicago they have a big push to get Konerko in. He's deserving but Youkilis probably is more so.

Swisher edged out Youkilis for the last All Star spot in what MLB says was the tightest vote since they started this Final Vote thing. Youkilis has slightly better overall numbers (.292, 17 HR, 55 RBI, .409 OBP) than Swisher (.298, 14 HR, 48 RBI, .376 OBP) and is probably better defensively, but Swisher got the votes so congrats to him.

True enough.

Good pickup for them though. I guess the M's were going to pull the trigger to send him to the Yankees till they found out one of the prospects they were getting was hurt.

Nice to see Paul Konerko named to the AL All Star team. He deserved it has had a great first half. White Sox looking real tough going into the second half.

Agreed. Even coming from this Tigers and Cubs fan. I voted for him several times. Glad to see that he made the team.

CC Sabathia Involved In Bench-Clearing Nap

NEW YORK—The entire Yankees squad poured off the bench, out of the dugout, and onto the field Monday after CC Sabathia reacted to a particularly strenuous inning by plopping down on the bench, stretching out, and taking a nap. "When that happens to your pitcher, you just have to support him and get out of the way," said shortstop Derek Jeter, who was one of the first Yankees on his feet when Sabathia began to recline. "In that situation, a good teammate just lets his pitcher sleep. It doesn't matter if he's right or wrong." Umpires were able to clear the field and play resumed shortly after Sabathia woke, although team medics have not yet been able to return Sabathia to an upright position
