    I will say that I don't like that every team has to be represented.
    I agree with most of what you said.

    <deleted text. [MENTION=1843]rob167[/MENTION] just notified me AS game no longer determines home field advantage so the drivel I was going on about no longer matters>

    Then again, my 2 favorite teams haven't made the WS in over a decade and I rarely actually watch the AS game so it's not that big of deal for me anyway.

    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    My biggest gripe with the All-Star game is the fact that it determines who gets home field advantage. This is my only reason for disliking fan voting because if the AS game could potentially affect the outcome of the World Series then only the best players should be representing the league.

    However, as you said, the AS game is supposed to be something fun for the fans, therefor we should get the vote.

    So I'm sort of divided on the concept of fan voting. A good way of fixing this is by doing away with this entire winner gets home field advantage situation. That way, we no longer need to worry about having the best players on the field.

    Then again, my 2 favorite teams haven't made the WS in over a decade and I rarely actually watch the AS game so it's not that big of deal for me anyway.
    Pretty sure, starting this season, the All-Star game no longer determines home field advantage for the World Series...

    Can't believe I hadn't heard about that but I'm glad they fixed it. Any other changes to the All-Star game I should know about?

    Cubs to option Schwarber to AAA.

    No sliding, no inside pitches and everyone gets a ribbon.

    Obviously Kyle does not value our friendship as much as I do.
