The 83rd All-Star Game will be played tonight in Kansas City. Justin Verlander of Detroit and Matt Cain of the Giants are the starting pitchers. It would have been nice to see knuckleballer R.A. Dickey of the Mets get the nod.
Here the the All-Star centerfielder reflects on his poor performance in 2010 and the criticism he received for his play. He also discusses his $160 million contract extension and being denied the 2011 MVP award.
