It’s a game that MLB has over the years tried to make it mean something. But in all honesty it is an exhibition game plain and simple. Just like the NBA, just like the Pro Bowl. The one difference …where the players in the NBA don’t play defense in the All star game or the players really hit each other in the Pro Bowl at  least MB goes hard case in point …Bryce Harper going all out in the all star game on defense …it was good to see and at least makes you think as a fan for one moment the game means something more than just an exhibition.

    It’s definitely the best of the all star games in the four major sports. I’m glad they removed that inane rule giving the winning league home field advantage in the World Series.

      Me too. It used to be you wanted to see Mays and Aaron on the same team vs Mantle and Williams. Weaver vs Palmer Carlton vs Hunter. Now with players moving all over and interleaved games plus cable that element of the all star game is long gone but at least hustle still remains.
