The MLB All Star game is the ONLY all star game I watch. The other ones are terrible and complete jokes. Bud got the All Star Game right.
I'm not going to argue about the all-star game, but you see a lot of posts about what a joke Bud is. Bud has been FANTASTIC for the game of baseball.
It's a short list, but he's been hands down the best commissioner in my lifetime.
yeah...yeah...Pete Rose, PEDs, ...FANTASTIC for the game. The commisssioner is supposed to be the owner's stooge and that's a role that Bud plays extraordinarily well. Money is being made hand over fist.
The only thing I would like to see is an earlier start to the playoff and all star games so kids on the east coast have a chance of developing into fans.
