2013 All-Star Game to be played at CitiField

From the NY Post:

The Yankees had their All-Star party last year, with an All-Star farewell to Yankee Stadium. The Mets and Citi Field will be having their All-Star Summer hello in 2013.

That was the word yesterday from MLB sources. The next two All-Star Games are set, Anaheim next season and Arizona in 2011. Then it shifts back to an AL club the following year, most likely in Kansas City. That leaves 2013 all set for Citi Field and the Mets.

The All-Star Game is the bigest waste of time in baseball. Can you ever think of a memorable moment in an All-Star Game?

I wish I could give a crap but the new stadium (and the worship of corporate culture that it represents) really turns me off. Who is this stadium named after? Excuse me...I meant what.

Its named after an offspring bank of the Rothschild (Jewish banking family).

So we here in Queens are stuck with a cathedral to the New World Order!?!?!!?!? Amazin'...and I ain't talkin' Mets! It is beginning to make sense to me...and dollars to the corporate world.

Probably the only time the expensive seats that the little people can't afford.

Hey maybe the Mets will relax the no-tipping rule that ushers used to earn a livin by. Now they are earning $60 per game and fired if they are caught accepting a buck. Good luck finding your seat otherwise at the allstar game!

I'm glad you specified that it's a "Jewish banking family," because, as you all know, it wouldn't be such a bad company if it were owned by gentiles.

The corporate naming of America's stadiums and arenas and music amphitheaters is a tragedy, in my opinion. It's a sign of the destruction of this great nation. I'm not anti-advertising but there's gotta be a limit. What kind of history can a place like Citi Field have when it has its name changed in a few years like so many corporately named venues? It's all so very asinine. A stadium should have the same name from its first game until last game, not five or six stoopid named in between... and that's what Citi Field and others will sadly have. It's idiotic.

Unless it becomes a soccer stadium beforehand.

1970: Pete Rose scores the winning run, barreling into catcher Ray Fosse on a Jim Hickman single. Fosse's career was never really the same.

1979: New York Met Lee Mazzilli ties the game with a home run and wins it with a bases loaded walk issued by Ron Guidry.
