  • I don't have a problem with the All-Star game ending in a tie, it was the correct decision. How would you like to be the manager who asks a pitcher on another team to go out and pitch some more and that pitcher ends up hurt? Given that it now takes an hour of pre-game cermonies to get to the game, it really seems that it is more of a media event than an athletic contest.

    It seems that the All-Star is getting to be more and more like the NFL prob bowl with star players declining out of injury or fear of injury.

    The owners have dug themselves a large portion of the current hole in which they find themselves. The existing owners were so intent on getting the expansion fees that they neglected a simple matter of economics. The pool of baseball players with major league talent is finite. Adding 4 extra teams who want players from that pool is can't help but increase the amount of money it takes to get a player. The supply stays the same and the demand is increased.

    • I actually wouldn't have had a problem with it if it had been fleshed out before hand. The fact that they waited two innings (and one out) made it worse.

      I think a cool solution would be a home-run derby by batters 1-3 on each team if both teams are tied after 9. With players like Bonds, I think it would have been a big hit (no pun intended).
