Final Score: AL 5 - NL 3 - great event held in the Twin Cities - "Michael'' Jeter the MVP?

Joe Cowley

Saving Buehrle in case this turns into Bud's worst nightmare and is tied up. So Buehrle is in line to earn the scare.

Joe Cowley

Twins flooding the field - Perkins closing it out.

Joe Cowley

102 to end the inning.

Joe Cowley

Chapman hits 100 on first pitch.

Aaron Brooks

Adam should've kept that to himself

Joe Cowley

Abreu gave it a ride .... will be one of many All-Star Games for the rook.

Joe Cowley

Glen Perkins warming for the 9th. Keep the Twins fans happy.

Joe Cowley

Rodney in a jam .... probably thinking, "Need a Cubs hitter up here....asap!''

Joe Cowley

LET BUEHRLE CLOSE!! LET BUEHRLE CLOSE!! He only did it in a World Series game once .... #Gamer

Joe Cowley

Rizzo will hit for Stanton.

Joe Cowley

Rizzo could also be getting a look this inning. Getting warm in the dugout with bat in hand.

Joe Cowley

Alexei Ramirez out of the game after going 1-for-2 with a run scored and a stolen base. Nice night.

Joe Cowley

Abreu back out at first. Thought he might get Doc Moonlight Graham-ed, but should leadoff the next inning.

Joe Cowley

Ramirez steals second ... making an impact for A.L.

Joe Cowley

All A.Ramirez does is get on base. They give the E3 on that.

Joe Cowley

I'm sure the NBA completely taking the summer hostage with free agency will help ... then football camps open in a few weeks....

Joe Cowley

Baseball is dying a slow death - at least in Chicago - good read - espn.go.com/blog/chicago/j…

Joe Cowley

Overrated, underrated ... judge Jeter how you want, but showing up when the lights shined brightest has been his MO.

Joe Cowley

More Jeets by the numbers - in going 2-for-2, Jeter is now hitting .481 in his All-Star career, which ranks fifth all-time (min 10 ABs).

Joe Cowley

S. Castro - our first Cubs sighting?

Chuck Swirsky

Really happy for Tony Snell. He's having a great Summer League. He s playing with confidence and poise .No surprise

Joe Cowley

Abreu in the game at first base.

Joe Cowley

A. Ramirez singles ... and then is traded to the Yankees.

Joe Cowley

16 pitches for Sale, 9 strikes....for those keeping track of such stuff.

Joe Cowley

Sale allows a run to tie the game - somewhere a certain pitching coach says, "Don't blame me, I'm not there.'' Sale not happy, inning over.

Joe Cowley

Jeter out for Ramirez. Nice hug by the two. Standing O.

Joe Cowley

We have a White Sox sighting! Soxtown!

Joe Cowley

Wainwright: "I get to tell my kids I faced one of the best ever.'' That was the first time Wainwright faced Jeets.

Joe Cowley

".... maybe I wouldn't have done it.'' Wainwright.

Joe Cowley

...that one was the leadoff double. "I thought he would single to the right side. If I would have known he would double ... ''

Joe Cowley

Wainwright just admitted he wanted to groove a pitch to Jeter and give him a chance. First pitch was in the dirt, so grooved 2nd.....

Jimmer Fredette

Had a great time meeting these two tonight! Really nice people and it made @whitneyfredette 's life! instagram.com/p/qfjymHEqY1/

Joe Cowley

Best way to sum up Contreras - a gentleman.

Joe Cowley

In talking with some Sox people, Jose Abreu is cut from the same cloth as Jose Contreras as far as his kindness.

Joe Cowley

Donaldson just got K-ershawed.

KC Johnson

The Bulls valued Carlos Boozer for most of his 4-year run, even if many outside the organization did not. trib.in/1ynY8S3

Joe Cowley

Goodbye Booze. See ya in LA, Houston or some other Western Conference destination. suntimes.com/sports/2868642…

Joe Cowley

Great AB by Utley - looked completely lost early on and found his way.

Joe Cowley

NBA has announced gold tabs on the back of jerseys for franchises that have an NBA title ... Call it the Melo Rule - as close as he'll get.

Joe Cowley

Can't wait to see Buehrle get in the game and baffle guys with 83.

Aggrey Sam

Wouldn't be shocked if Carlos ended up in Houston.

Joe Cowley

Miggy Cabrera goes deep. AL takes 3-0 lead on Jeter Day.

Joe Cowley

Mirotic will initially start off getting the Nazr minutes until he shows otherwise, and Bairstow could pickup whatever is left early on.

Joe Cowley

Out with the old (Jeter), in with the new (Trout). New RE27PECT!

Chuck Swirsky

Fox field mic picks up " Overrated" by a fan with Jeter at the plate----wow timing is everything---my goodness

Joe Cowley

Baseball still has THOSE moments. Jeter doubles. Fewer and fewer in the game, but when they happen, special.

Nazr Mohammed

No plus one needed lol RT @TheChicagoNinja: @Nazr Mohammed I live a few blocks from the event. Will get my tix just as soon as I find a +1.

Joe Cowley

Jeter remains the definition of baseball class. Fans responding like they should.

Joe Cowley

Don't sleep on Bairstow, either. Early word is Thibs loves his physical play. Has that Asik feel to him as far as welcoming contact.

Joe Cowley

McDermott answers 31-point performance with 20 today against the Wolves. Will be fun to watch his development.

Joe Cowley

Old-man strength right there by Jeter, but McCutchen too fast. Can't throw out lightening.

Sam Smith

Billy Baron aiming for backup Bulls point guard spot. blogs.bulls.com/2014/07/bulls-…

Joe Cowley

They should let Jeter parachute in since it's his All-Star Game. Standing O for Jeets.

Joe Cowley

Still weird seeing Buehrle in Blue Jay.

Joe Cowley

Even Jeff Samardzija had to laugh at his introduction with the NL team, knowing he belongs in the AL dugout.

Shams Charania

Free agent Jason Smith has signed a one-year, $3.3M deal with the New York Knicks, league source tells RealGM.

Mike McGraw

Tomorrow, but Bulls should have bye RT @juiceboxjerry: When do SL playoffs start?

Nick Friedell

The end of an era. RT @ESPNChiBulls: Boozer always left you wanting more es.pn/1slq9ZX

Joe Cowley

Could Ozzie Guillen and Jerry Reinsdorf be ready to pick up the Billy Martin-Steinbrenner torch? Read it - suntimes.com/sports/2868467…

Mike McGraw

Bulls have hit 40-of-78 3ptrs in summer league. McDermott is 11-21; Snell 12-23

Mike McGraw

My guess is Gasol starts & 4th Qs will be interesting RT @jfinger2011: any chance Gasol is cool with coming off the bench, he would dominate

Chuck Swirsky

Doug McDermott is the talk of the NBA Summer League http://t.co/udSwwwag0K

Mike McGraw

No, since they went under cap had "room" MLE, which used on Kirk. RT @DanLenzen: Roster is pretty much set, right? But still have MLE?

Mike McGraw

Shabazz Muhammad 3-for-15 FGs today for Twolves. Someone on Bulls playing some summer defense.

Sam Smith

Bulls challenging for summer league ring. Now 3-0 after 107-73 over Minn, third team held under 80. Summer league D? McDermott leads w/20

Mike McGraw

No. Cavs also 3-0 & Wizards have a chance later today RT @RayBullsInsider: Did the Knicks win all 12 quarters too? They're 3-0

Mike McGraw

Teams with cap space get 1st chance to bid on Boozer. RT @DeepFriedStack: To Miami. Put it in the bank.

Mike McGraw

Bulls have outscored opponent in all 12 quarters played in Las Vegas, so they should be No. 1 seed in playoffs & play again Thursday.

KC Johnson

McDermott scores 20 as Bulls blow out TWolves 107-73 to move to 3-0 in summer league.

Mike McGraw

Bulls still haven't lost since adding Doug McDermott. Roll past Twolves 107-73 to go 3-0 in LV. McDermott 20, Snell 12, Bairstow 11.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 107- 73. McDermott Snell Bairstow Ware shine

Mike McGraw

Always felt Boozer contributed to plenty of Bulls wins. Production just didn't match his salary. Now he'll be a bargain for another team.

Aggrey Sam

Bulls a contender in Central/East: bit.ly/1n81xSt

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls 90-62 McDermott and Snell have combined for 32.

Chuck Swirsky

Early 4th Bulls 85-62

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott with 20. Bulls 81-59

Chuck Swirsky

After 3. Bulls 81-58.

Chuck Swirsky

Snell slashes and scores. Bulls blasting Minny 67/48 419 left 3rd

Chuck Swirsky

Snell and McDermott back to back hoops 62-46 Bulls 3rd

Joe Cowley

"If I wear a uniform and it’s the White Sox, that will be special.'' More Guillen on return to Sox.

Joe Cowley

"When Robin gets tired of managing or he’s had enough, I would like to be back. But it’s up to them.'' Oz

Sam Smith

McDermott lighting it up again with 18 early in 3rd. George Karl talking to NBA-TV likened McDermott's shooting release to Dell Curry

Joe Cowley

... Guillen said: "If I say yes [about managing Sox again], then I don’t respect Robin Ventura. But that’s not where I’m coming from...''

Joe Cowley

Guillen family was moved he showed up. Ozzie said they had a real nice talk, and when asked if he could see himself doing a Billy Martin ...

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott with a gorgeous feed Bairstow count it and a foul Bulls 56-46

Joe Cowley

On the baseball front - news for White Sox fans - Jerry Reinsdorf was at the weeding for Ozzie Guillen Jr. last weekend.

Chuck Swirsky

McDermott with a nifty turn around J in the paint. 54-46 Bulls McBuckets with 15

Joe Cowley

Bulls have officially amnestied Carlos Boozer. Could have done it weeks ago, but no big surprise. #GimmieDat

Nick Friedell

Carlos Boozer era in Chicago officially over. Bulls just sent out the release.

Aggrey Sam

After amnestying Carlos and trading Anthony Randolph/Greg Smith, Bulls will have 11 players under contract with Kirk/Pau/Mirotic signings.

Chuck Swirsky

Halftime Bulls 49 Minny 43 McDermott 13

KC Johnson

More Gar: "Carlos’ productivity helped elevate our team to another level. I have nothing but respect for Carlos and wish him the best."
