I have heard different stories on this subject, and I am going to make one thing clear.

Jonathan Papelbon has no right to pitch the final inning of the All-Star Game. He does not deserve it, he did not earn it, and he has not made any history in Yankee Stadium.
Terry Francona should be in the right mindset to have Mariano Rivera pitch the ninth inning, no matter what.
Rivera was won four World Series rings, won a World Series MVP, won three reliever awards, and has become one of the greatest closers of all-time. He is a staple in the Yankees franchise and has NOT BLOWN A SAVE (ahem...).

So Paps, if you think you are the deserving player to pitch the final inning, then you need to go read some history books and understand that you are far from deserving.

Know your history and know your place. The ninth inning at Yankee Stadium does not belong to you.

I have, and always will be, a true Yankees fan. Don't give me that bandwagon crap; bandwagon fans are for people who need to belong.
