No way did I stay up and watch the end of the All-Star Game. I made it to midnight, which coincided with the end of the 10th inning and the AL wasting the bases loaded, no outs situation. If the All-Star Game is a big gimmick anyway, what with it determining home field for the World Series and all, why not just go to a league-vs-league Home Run Derby after the 9th inning. The Midsummer Classic version of a shoot-out. Three guys from both teams get three swings, with coaches throwing BP-quality fast balls down the middle, team with the highest combined HR total at the end wins. If tied, it goes to sudden death. That’s not any stupider than tie games or letting guys from last place teams determine where the World Series will start.
