A home run tonight. He’ll be in a few more of these things. In 2008, he could be an All-Star at Yankee Stadium. Nothing official, but it’s a good bet the Yankees will host the game in the final year of their park.
The All-Star Game is usually a reward for getting a new stadium. Mets VP Jeff Wilpon said the team will seek to host a game in the new place. The only thing official is San Francisco next year. Here’s how I see the All-Star site selection over the next few years:
2007: San Francisco
2008: Yankee Stadium
2009: St. Louis
2012: Kansas City
2013: NL park. This would be the first realistic shot at the Mets hosting.

Talk with you later. Enjoy the rest of the game.
