Duchscher has left the building.

The All-Star game this year was very disappointing. Although fan favorite Miguel Tejada hit a homer, our hometown rep Justin Duchscherer did not get a chance to pitch. The middle reliever is having a very good season (perhaps not All-Star quality, but oh well). I ordered his All-Star jersey on eBay, making the irony even stronger. Brian Fuentes, Jason Isringhausen, Billy Wagner and Cesar Izturis did not get into the game for the NL, and Danys Baez, along with Duchscherer, did not appear for the AL. The AL won its 8th consecutive All-Star game (not including the 2002 tie), giving the American League representative home field advantage in the world series.

By the way, Mariah Carey's clothes fell off earlier today. Apparently she took the title of her latest LP, "The Emancipation of Mimi", a little too seriously. (Ba dum ching)
