I realize that, and it's my fault for not making myself clear. I didn't mean just the All-Star Game; I meant in general. They (announcers, beat writers) always talk up a pitcher's good record (or bad record). There are so many variables that go into a win and/or a loss, that I just don't get why it holds so much weight in anyone's mind when evaluating a pitcher's worth.
