All-star rants

There is so much wrong with the All-Star game, I don't even know where to begin.

  • The Homerun Derby is a complete sham. They interview Sammy Sosa after his first round, Sammy says "It's all for the fans. I do it for the fans".

    That's funny that sounds suspiciously like the defense you used when you were caught corking your bat .... direct quote from the corking incident, "...just to put on a show for the fans. I like to make people happy..."

    Why didn't one of the 25 different people they had interviewing players on the field ask him if he was making the fans happy with one of his "special" bats.

    During a replay of the 2002 Home Run Derby, from Milwaukee, I caught this little gem. Sosa, upon struggling to hit homeruns, stops in the middle of his round and switches bats. With the new bat Sosa goes on a HR tear, launching moonshots all over the park. Nobody thought anything of it at the time, but this guy is not the innocent character the media likes to portrait him as.

  • Talking baseballs and "lipstick" cameras don't add my viewing enjoyment

  • neither does Tim McCarver.

  • WTF was with that talking baseball "shooter"?

  • This just in, Hideki Matsui has just won American Baseball Idol

  • Bud Selig is on the field in the middle of the game. Is it a tie Bud?

  • George Bush, the first one, couldn't bother to stay for the whole game. That kid who was in his seat after he left reminded me of the SNL sketch with Chris Farley as Guliani's kid during his inauguration(?).

  • Esteban Loiaza pitched, and he wasn't the worst pitcher there. Not even close.

  • I've wasted too much time on this whole thing already. If you wanna laugh some more at the shortcomings of the game, read this transcript from the guys over at Hardballtimes.

  • Home field advantage for the World Series!!! Woo-Hoo!!!
