Watching, not pitching
CC Sabathia and Jered Weaver are All-Stars. They just can’t pitch in the game.
Thanks to a new rule that prohibits anyone from pitching in the All-Star game after starting on Sunday, the two AL aces are here as window dressing.
“I’m not upset at all,” the Yankees’ Sabathia said. “I understand the rule is to protect us.’’
Weaver, who leads the AL in strikeouts, was a late addition because of an injury.
