RiveraMariano Rivera has pulled out of the All-Star Game due to concerns over his sore triceps, MLB has announced.

Rivera has been hobbled for about a week and may actually be able to pitch as early as Thursday, but the vaunted closer did not want to risk further injury in an exhibition game, so he has bowed out. Replacing Rivera is Angels closer Jordan Walden, who was the next highest relief pitcher on the players' ballot.

Walden made the Angels out of spring training, but the rookie needed several games to go by before he wrested the closer's job from Fernando Rodney. He's held it since, racking up 19 saves in 36 2/3 innings, striking out 39 -- albeit with 17 walks.

This is the most idiotic statement I've ever seen.  New York has more championships than Boston.  That doesn't even go into counting the NFL championships that the Giants won before the Super Bowl. It also Doesn't count the World Series that the MLB Giants and the Dodgers won while in New York. Boston SUCKS, get over it.
