All-Star Game links

As you probably know, there is a ton of Yankees coverage tying into All-Star week at The Stadium. Here are some interesting stories that I've come across:

  • The Post's Joel Sherman names his all Yankee Stadium team ('76-'08). If Donnie didn't make the list, I wouldn't be linking this.
  • ESPN.com's Buster Olney correctly asserts that Mariano Rivera -- and not goofball Jonathan Papelbon -- should be closing out the All-Star Game. The News' Bill Madden provides his take as well. The biggest non-story story of the week.
  • LoHud's PeteAbe says Yankee Stadium itself is the biggest star of tonight's Midsummer Classic.
  • The News' John Harper reports on A-Rod being in the eye of the media storm. You got what you asked for, Mr. Madonna.
  • Did you know there was a time when MLB hosted two All-Star Games? The Times' Richard Sandomir discusses this strange moment in baseball history.
  • The Times' William C. Rhoden reports that erstwhile Mets manager Willie Randolph will be a guest of the Steinbrenner family tonight. Very interesting.
  • Mac Montandon of New York Magazine has an interesting piece on the big business of selling off Yankee Stadium junk. People are stupid.
