Watch­ing, not pitch­ing

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

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.
