    For a second there, I thought Gordon got that one out to dead center.

On top of that, every team must be represented, so more of the best players are forced to sit out so a player from the Astros or White Sox or Marlins can be on the team. And then the manager tries to get everyone to play in a game that supposedly matters.

    Either the game matters and you get the absolute best players from each league playing in the game, regardless of which team they play for, and then they play the game as if it matters - or they continue to treat it as the exhibition it truly is.

    It's a joke.
    If the all star game is a joke, then what is the one-game wild-card playoff game? That is even worse. Any one game series in baseball is stupid.

    As for the number of teams that care, there are probably 16 teams that still have a legitimate shot at the playoffs. I could maybe agree with you on who is selected, but only to an extent. I think most of the players on each roster are very deserving. But it could be improved if we just forgot about the teams who are last in their division. But all star game a joke? I have to respectfully disagree.

    Anybody catch ISU on the fox sports promotion? Not bad to be used on their promotional coverage of all sports from Nascar to NFL at the end of the All Star game.

    Re: 2013 MLB All Star Game

    So I didn't watch but why did Mariano pitch the 8th instead of the 9th?

    He said it was because they wanted to be 100% sure that he was going to pitch an inning, and if the NL took the lead in the 8th then he wouldn't get the chance to pitch the 9th.
