What's the perfect scenario for the All-Star Game? Rivera closing it out for the save. So with a three-run lead, let's bring Rivera in for the 8th and give someone else the save.

It was 3-0. It's not like 3 runs sneak up on you. If the NL scores 1 or 2, you can bring him in. The "Cinderella Story" would have been Rivera saving his last All-Star game, and the opportunity was there. Easily could have waited to see how the 8th was playing out.

I don't think you know what the term "Cinderella Story" means.

And I don't think you want to be rushing a 43 year old Rivera to get up and ready to get into an All-Star Game in the middle of an inning, and then have him not close the game anyhow (there's no way he's going for a 1+ inning save in the ASG, regardless of the story).  I think I would have played the odds at that point, but if you don't want to, I think you have to have him start the 8th.

It was done perfectly. Get him a full inning.

Only jtpops wouldn't understand.

Was cool to see him set up. He was a set up man to start his career for Wetland and now its also a little bit of a passing of the torch.

Were you watching the Great American Biggest Loser Surviving with Bear Grylls in Siberia cooking show?

No.  Catching up on all my shows on the DVR.

The Killing, Ray Donovan, True Blood (pity watching now), Falling Skies....

I do watch Big Brother.  My guilty "Reality" TV pleasure.

Nerd.   I ADD watched the A/S game while watching some Ted, playing a video game, clicking channels, playing with dogs, etc, etc.

Just saying with what's on TV these days, watching the A/S game isn't mockery-worthy.

VERY GOOD DOCUMENTARY ABOUT LEWIS+ CLARK ON PBS LAST NIGHT, GREAT WAY TO AVOID ALL-STAR COMMERCIAL BREAKS

Caught some of that.

I watched that too a week or so ago.  Had me hooked.  I was surprised.
