    Mickey Mantle said a major regret was that he didnt take the ASG more seriously. As I said before managers played many of their best players the entire game and a third of the players never even got into the game. Now we go back to a meaningless game with endless groin hugging

    And a team's record in one league has anything to do with the record of the team in the other league? Meaningless metric
    You play who you play. Either win or don't win. The ASG is just as meaningless today as it was last year, the players just don't give a shit. That's why it was stupid to have WS homefield decided on the outcome of that game.

    It doesn't matter how it was back in your day, that's not how it is anymore, and that's not how it's been for the duration of this ridiculous rule.

    What would you consider perfect?
    Balanced scheduled is better, but perfect? Not sure it can be honestly.

    Some people in here apparently think Bud Selig was a competent commissioner....rather than type out his generous list of guffaws, I'll just let Barry Rosner do it for me.

    Funny that the Cubs had the whole damn infield at the ASG so it's their own fault for not getting home field, yet I love that the last two were away due to pressure that would've stifled those games.


    "Better options"?

    Weighted record against common opponents?

    Head to head record?

    Skills competition, like each team pick their fastest guy & they race to the outfield wall/fence & back. Throw a ball the furthest & most accurate like golf drive competitions. Nevermind, golf sucks.
