    Is the All Star Game Still Interesting?

    I guess, I'm odd, but I really liked they were playing for World Series Home Field advantage.... I can see arguments against it, but to me the game meant something.

    You could win 105 games in a 162 game season and not have Game 7 at home because some reserve that fans voted in made or didn't make a play. The whole Selig All-Star Game experiment was asinine.

    bro for your ass to get hit with the ball, you would have to be facing the opposite direction of homeplate.

    be reasonable.

    All star game is great! Especially deciding WS home field. I use to not like it, because best team/record should have had home in WS, but this makes it more interesting and you're getting all the best players usually trying hard to win. Fun for me to watch anyways, but I actually love the game too, not just betting on it, but the game itself.

    Didn't a guy hit a homer a few years ago for one league to win the game, then he was traded to another league where he made the World Series and didn't have homefield due to his HR?

    I don't recall that particular incident but it wouldn't surprise me.

    As a Cubs fan, I enjoyed the game having some meaning because we weren't making the World Series anyway. Of course this last year I learned quickly how selfish I was being and I'm glad they took that stupid shit away

    I did not know I was dealing with you. I thought I was responding to a stupid post from someone who did not understand how a baseball player could get hit in the ass with a pitch. What do credentials have to do with anything? Anyone who has ever played has been hit in the ass many times. Credentials. Hilarious!

    This is the whole issue. America's pastime is now owned by the Hispanics and they don't speak English.
