ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals All-Star right-hander Adam Wainwright has a dilemma.
He would like to pitch in the All-Star Game on Tuesday night at Citi Field.
But caring teammate that he is, he would like even more for Cardinals closer Edward Mujica to pitch in the All-Star Game.
Wainwright so badly wants his teammate to make his first All-Star team that he gladly would give up his place on the National League's 34-man roster. Because of baseball rules governing All-Star participation, Wainwright is in a position to give up his spot. Much to his dissatisfaction, however, he can't decide who takes his place.
But he certainly can try to influence the decision.
"I want it to be known that I am available and I would love to pitch, but I'd rather see Mujie get a chance to pitch in that game," Wainwright said Tuesday night after he won his 12th game and lowered his ERA to 2.30.
While Wainwright isn't allowed to name his replacement, don't be surprised if he helps get the Chief to New Y...
