Re: Game Thread: Game To Decide If Reds Get Home Field Advantage For WS (EE out again)
I think allowing an All Star game determine home field advantage for such a prestigious heritage like the WS is a crock. Pud Selig is an Idiot and I have never liked the idea! The All Star game is an exhibition and nothing else. The fans stuff the ballot boxes and it is not a fair vote in the first place. Managers don't want to get a player hurt and that is why there is so much substitution going on. I think alternating it was a more fair solution.
I wonder why this dumb IDEA was not brought up when the National League was winning all those years? See Pud Selig!
