NEW YORK -- While it has been speculated that the 2014 All-Star Game will be held at the Twins' new ballpark in Minneapolis, Commissioner Bud Selig on Wednesday said a decision has not been made.Selig was asked about the timing of Wednesday's announcement. "There's no rule on that," he said at the Owners Meetings at baseball's office in New York. "We haven't announced '14 yet and won't for quite awhile. And '15 will have the same time lag. There's no particular reason. I think this was most appropriate." Selig said he likely intends to continue the current National League/American League hosting rotation. This year's game is in Kansas City on July 10, which means the 2014 game should be played at an AL site. The last time the All-Star Game was played in successive NL cities was 2006 in Pittsburgh and '07 in San Francisco. "We have intense competitions for All-Star Games," Selig said. "But what I try to do is alternate leagues and years ... so 2013 is an NL year, and that's why the Mets were offered that. Kansas City has it this year. It's really no more complex than that."
Hal remains patient as Yanks' injuries mount
NEW YORK -- The Yankees finished Wednesday night's action in Toronto three games over .500 at 20-17, but their managing general partner remains patient."I'm concerned about the injuries," Hal Steinbrenner told CBSSports.com on Wednesday morning at the Owners Meetings. "That's more than half the battle. I know they're going to keep trying, keep fighting." The Yankees are currently without closer Mariano Rivera, setup man David Robertson and left fielder Brett Gardner, all on the disabled list with various injuries. Rivera is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, while going back on a fly ball during batting practice.
Brewers want to keep Greinke in Milwaukee
NEW YORK -- The Brewers would like to re-sign right-hander Zack Greinke, who is on a roll after pitching seven shutout innings in an 8-0 win over the Mets on Tuesday night at Citi Field."Sure, why not? We'd like to keep him," Brewers owner Mark Attanasio, who is in town for the Owners Meetings, told CBSSports.com. Greinke is 4-1, with a 2.88 ERA, but in his last two starts, he's walked none and whiffed 18 over the course of 15 innings. Greinke can become a free agent after the season and would probably grab more than $100 million in the open market. He is in the final year of a four-year, $38 million deal that he signed with Kansas City. Greinke said he likes playing in Milwaukee. "Good owner. Good guys in management. Good guys in the clubhouse. Really good, really good," Greinke said.
