Thinking All-Star Week at Citi Field

One of the coolest things about being a baseball fan is knowing your All-Star Game is light years better than any other sport’s…and that it matters. The National League has capitalized on three straight All-Star victories.

I spent Tuesday at Citi Field, partly for the big Clayton Kershaw-Jon Niese matchup and also to do some advance work on the All-Star Week stuff that is coming there for this summer. Here is my ballot launch story on MLB.com and here is the 2013 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot sponsored by freecreditscore.com.

Just wanted to share some Instagrams I posted in the meantime, and making sure you are all set to blog like crazy now that the All-Star ballot is out. Make sure you leave comments here with your full URL and tell us to come and see how you use up those earliest votes, and we’ll promote some of them.

I chatted with Keith Olbermann for a while on the field during Padres batting practice just before the Citi Field opener on Monday, and took the profile pic of him above on his MLBlog. He is really enthused about his MLBlogging, as you can see from his very impassioned posts. Below is a grab of the MSNBC video clip from last night’s show, in which
Rachel Maddow chatted with him about baseball and his
popular MLBlog Baseball Nerd. “Can we do this all the time?” she asked him. Be sure to regularly watch for Keith’s posts, but remember that he already has advised everyone he could care less what you say in the comments. So if you want to get all political, he just doesn’t care. Talk baseball.

Pics from Opening Night at Citi Field

I’ll be working the Yankee Stadium home opener all day and will post some pics, tweets and all that good stuff. This site actually has the best way for me to find my own MLB.com articles, always chronological, in case you want to catch up as it is an Opening Blur. In the meantime, here were some shots I took Monday in Queens — where they now have a ballpark that I consider second to none in baseball.
