Lupica on D&C: Steinbrenner 'was a bully'

New York Daily News columnist Mike Lupica joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about George Steinbrenner, an individual who was a frequent target of Lupica's prior to the Yankees owner's death Tuesday.

 

"He was a bully," Lupica said, although he noted, "There are many warm memories I have of this guy."

 

Lupica said the team will always be under Steinbrenner's shadow while it remains in the family's control. Steinbrenner's sons Hal and Hank currently are in charge. "They will be George Steinbrenner's Yankees no matter what happens as the team spins forward," Lupica said.

 

Lupica claims he is the one who gave Steinbrenner the nickname "Boss," and it wasn't meant as a compliment. "I gave him this nickname as a mark one day, and he liked it, and it stuck," Lupica said.

Ortiz: 'Wrong place, wrong time'

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz started a potential American League rally in the ninth inning, delivering a leadoff single. But with one out, he was gunned out at second base when National League (and Cubs) right fielder Marlon Byrd fielded John Buck's blooper to shallow right and came up throwing, grabbing the ball on a bounce and forcing out Ortiz at second on a rare 9-6 fielder's choice.

 

"Wrong place, wrong time, wrong guy," Ortiz mused.

 

Ortiz said that he could not stray too far from first base as Byrd was coming in, as he did not want to be doubled off of first base had the Cubs outfielder caught the ball.

 

And so, rather than a first-and-second situation with one out, the AL had two outs and a man on first. The next batter, Ian Kinsler, flied out to center to end the game, and conclude the National League's 3-1 victory, ending the senior circuit's...

NL stops All-Star skid with 3-1 win

Brian McCan's three-run double off of Matt Thornton in the top of the seventh inning led the National League to a 3-1 win over the American League at the 2010 MLB All-Star Game in Anaheim.

 

It is the first All-Star win for the Senior Circuit since 1996.

 

The American League held a 1-0 lead through six innings, with the run coming via a sacrifice fly from Robinson Cano that plated Evan Longoria in the bottom of the fifth. David Price stared for the AL and pitched two scoreless innings, followed by scoreless frames from Andy Pettitte, Cliff Lee, Justin Verlander and Jon Lester. 

 

But Philip Hughes started the seventh and struggled, giving up singles to Scott Rolen and Matt Holliday after a leadoff ground out from Joey Votto. Thornton relieved Hughes and induced a foul pop-out to Chris Young. The White Sox reliever then walked Marlon Byrd, setting up McCan's heroics.

Perfect inning for Lester at All-Star Game

Jon Lester tossed a perfect inning of relief at the 2010 MLB All-Star Game, retiring former minor-league teammate Hanley Ramirez, Martin Prado and Adrian Gonzalez on 18 pitches.

 

The left-hander warmed up twice in the bullpen before pitching in the sixth inning. John Buck caught Lester, who induced a comebacker from Ramirez, a pop-out to short from Prado and a ground out to second from Gonzalez.
