That whole thing was pointless. I don't know if anything will ever make the all-star game relevant, but it sure wasn't going to be that.

Home field advantage does mean something, but not as much as some make it out to be. If you have the best season, you deserve more home games. Period. So glad they are finally going to right this mistake.

if you're an AL team you'd probably rather have your DH available in a game 7....unless of course you're facing the Cubs, who have Schwarber  :tounge:

Ya, I think Wrigley was a bit of a distraction for this team this year. But not all teams are trying to break a 108 year drought, where the first negative that happens leads to an entire fan base collectively hanging themselves.

I take Visitors on every coin flip!

I want to show the other team from the first pitch what they are in for that game!

I know, not the point.

That was the dumbest rule ever!  Now watch the NL go on a run winning ASGs.
