WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The 2013 MLB All-Star Game may have been a complete dud, but at least we can all be thankful it yielded a fight on the Junkies Wednesday morning.
If you’re going to fight in the first segment of a four-hour broadcast, it better be for a good reason, because with that baseline of tension built-in, arguments will likely spring from it throughout the show.
So what caused this fight?
In short, the dispute arose over whether Jim Leyland should have put 43-year-old Mariano Rivera in the game in the 8th or 9th inning with a 3-0 American League lead during last night’s mid-summer classic.
As with any great EB/JP quarrel, this spawned from the two nitpicking each other over something that very quickly, and easily would have otherwise sounded the minutia alarm.
