The Wednesday after the ASB is always the slowest sports day of the year. This is the day when any puff pieces ESPN has had in the can for a while end up on SportsCenter, when there's no games to cover, when the NFL, NBA and NHL are all in dead periods...
I watched some of the All Star game last night. And I have to say, I think the Rangers reps represented quite well. Michael Young's two out triple will be shown in All Star Game highlights for years to come.
Gerry Fraley has a piece on Michael Young, All Star MVP, including the obligatory blurbs from Jerry Narron and the John Hart/Damian Easley references.
Kat O'Brien says Freddy Guzman is expected to be recalled to takes Jason Botts' roster spot, and has this quote on Botts from Jon Daniels:
Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said: "With the makeup of the club right now, it makes sense to have a more versatile player on the bench. Jason's got a chance to impact this team in time. He left a very positive impression on me."
Jan Hubbard and O'Brien are doing a chat session at noon today...you can access it here.
