Also hopefully the jays take buffalo from the mets during the AAA musical chairs this off season.
It's a funnish thing for the players to get to be a part of it and on national TV. And I guess it's kind of neat for a fan to go to as well. But I always hated all-star games.
Went to the AAA All-Star Game in Memphis in 2004 or whenever they had it because I happened to be living there then. Was less than thrilling.
I mean, we saw a bunch of different pitchers (one inning from each like a typical all-star game) and a few HR's (it was like 11-8 or something). But it's hard to get into the Pacific Coast League vs. the International League....or the AL affiliates vs. the NL affiliates or however they do it now.
But that's all also related to my own personal taste for All-Star Games in general which tend to just bore me to tears regardless of the sport.
