Baseball All-Star Game

Post  Cincy Fan 44 on Tue Jul 14, 2009 10:58 am

The Baseball All-Star Game is tonight...anyone else going to watch it? I think baseball really needs to do away with this silly notion that whichever league wins this EXHIBITION game gets home-field advantage in the World Series.

I can understand they want to avoid the embarrassment of several years ago when it ended in a tie...but I think they can come up with a better solution to any All Star game that goes into extra innings. My solution? Homerun hitting contest. I'm not a chick but I dig the long ball. Hockey actually does excessive overtimes right with a shootout. Why not baseball?

Either that or a 'grab your crotch and spit for distance' contest...Roseanne might come out of retirement then!

Not a big fan of baseball especially on TV. I personally like the all star game as the deciding factor for home field makes the game more worthwhile when something is at stake.

Wouldn't it be great if right after he gets to the FOX broadcast booth, Joe Buck says, "Excuse me Mr. President, but Sean Hannity will now be pinch-hitting for Tim McCarver. Sean, your first question..." Laughing

Come on, guys, this is a baseball discussion, not politics. Can we not drag Obama/Rush/Hannity/radio-talk-show-host-of-your-choice into every frickin' discussion?

How exciting. The American League won again. Evil or Very Mad

And just for you Aggie. Smile What kind of pansy-ass throw was Obama's first pitch? Did the jumbo-tron say "Throw pitch that barely makes it to the catcher."? When Bush threw the first pitch in the World Series, it was a clear strike.

at least Barack's first pitch wasn't as bad as this one...(love the look on Eric Davis' face)...

Bush has the moves... if it werent for his ninja like reflexes he would have caught the shoe right in the coked up, sweaty upper lip face...

Haha, I am glad I didn't throw that first pitch when I had the chance to. Not at the all stars game, but at a regular Toronto game a few weeks ago.

That would've been me being the worst pitch ever.

I forgot about that. I'm surprised no MLB team signed that shoe-thrower. He had quite a good fastball, and accurate.

Does anyone know what kind of pitch Obama was trying to throw. I'm guessing a "change" up.
