I agree with Dave!
I’ve seen a spattering of comments about the fiasco at baseball’s All-Star game earlier this week. Time for me to weigh in. First, the All-Star Game is total bullshit. It’s an exhibition. It doesn’t matter. It never did matter, and it’s hardly the end of baseball as we know it when the managers, umpires and the commisioner of baseball don’t respect it enough to allow it to be played like any other baseball game. No, ladies and gentlemen, the end of baseball as an honorable sport with a rich philosophy came with the Designated Hitter Rule of the so-called American League; and the final nail in the coffin was interleague play. Pitchers were meant to come to bat, so the opposing pitcher could throw at them, and the mystery of the two leagues matters. [Scripting News]
