Mike Trout led off the 2013 All-Star Game with a first-pitch double off Mets’ pitcher Matt Harvey. Harvey, with his eyes popping, but serious, then drilled Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano in the right knee. It was probably retaliatory. Cano made his way to first, but left the game after the next batter was retired. No word on how serious Cano’s knee injury is, but we do know that Matt Harvey will no longer be able to get a cab in the Bronx. Get it? Because both guys play in New York.
