    Only fitting that that weak-@ss National League line-up (compared to the recent years) would light up the American League.

    It bugs me when all star games in any sport let everyone wear their normal uniform instead of an all star uniform.

    I actually feel the other way. I like the players wearing their team uniforms. Not sure why exactly I feel that way, but I always have.

    no need for time to be wasted with relievers warming up on the mound in allstar games where they are just going in to get a chance to play. warm up in the pen, and immediately come in and fire heaters down the pipe. i'm all for everybody getting some run, but come on. 5 minute breaks every pitching change is silly.

    Why are they playing the NFL on FOX theme. It's pissing me off. I look up and keep expecting to see Football. It's just quick reaction.

    They play that intro now for every sport on FOX, which is quite lame. It's a football intro and should stay that way. I agree with you.
