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.
