NEW YORK POST LEAKS THE IDENTITY OF ALL STAR GAME STARTERS

JOSH HAMILTON

The New York Post has revealed the starters for this year’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

The announcement of the game’s starters was supposed to be revealed during The MLB All-Star Game Selection Show Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on TBS. The Post beat TBS to the punch. MLB and TBS execs have to be seething because Turner paid for the rights to telecast the selection show. They also found a major corporate sponsor (Chevy) for the show.

Now, the identity of the game’s starters has already been revealed and you don’t have to watch TBS to find out who they are. The selection show will still reveal the reserves and pitchers for both squads.

Here are the 2008 starters:

    The Post has pulled the story off its Web site and ESPN has purged the AP dispatch from its service. Scroll down and click on the headline “Report: Rodriguez, Ramirez highlight AL All-Stars” and the page won’t open:
