I love the rainy nights
BRAVO ! I stopped voting once fans had the opportunity to cast 25 votes (at least) online. Then kind Bud decided that an exhibition designed as entertainment for the fans would decide home field advantage in the most important series of the entire season.
I hope that one of these years a manager decides to play the best players the entire game, let his starter go 6, and substitute only to pinch hit and for defense.
If the game's going to count, why not. Then let's see what Selig says.
As for voting (MVP, CY, etc. included)
33% - Managers and coaches
33% - Writers
33% - James gang (Bill James and the Sabre geeks)
