Russell Martin is an All-Star … again

He won’t be the starter this year — he finished way down the list in fan voting. But he will be going to Yankee Stadium for the first time in his life (and, as he pointed out, probably the last), something he says he is really excited about.
“I fortunate enough to have a chance to play there,” Martin said. “A lot of people in this game never have the opportunity to play there, so I’m fortunate, especially with this being the last season of Yankee Stadium. It’s going to be awesome.”
Martin also said he thinks this year’s All-Star Game will be a more relaxing experience for him. Last year was his first, and it can be a bit of a whirlwind for those who have never been.

    Great lineup. Well, except for Berroa, but Nomar’s fragility requires it. Now if only Torre would stay with this lineup!

    Congratulations to J.D. Drew, Dioner Navarro and Milton Bradley on making the All-Star team.

    And congrats to Andre Ethier, the only leftover return from these players, on finally getting the chance to start everyday (but only when Pierre hurt himself). Yet, the only question we’ll hear TJ ask Colletti is, “When are these young kids going to get it???”

    scanman, grow up and give it a rest. If you really don’t like him, move on and be a BIG boy about it. Bye bye!!
