The mob of media stampedes into the all-star interview room every summer. Pity the poor player who's at the first elevated podium nearest the entrance. He's the first target of opportunity. If you're worried about saying something controversial, that's exactly where you don't want to be. MLB, of course, would never exploit a teenager for publicity by putting him in those cross-hairs, especially if he's the youngest all-star everyday player ever.

Yeah, right.
