Yankees | Mariano Rivera doesn't want to start ASG

New York Yankees RP Mariano Rivera said he'd prefer to close out the All-Star game this year instead of start it. If he notches a save in the game, it would be his fifth career All-Star save. "I've been told about it, but I don't like it," Rivera said. "And the reason why I say that is it's not what I do. What I do is close the games, I don't start the games. It's a privilege and honor, but I'm not contemplating it." Rivera is tied for the major league lead in saves this year with 26, and he's blown just one save this year to go along with a 1.61 ERA.
