Since there isn't a real game to watch over the next few days, I thought I'd throw out this question: How would you fix the All Star Game? I have seen a few ideas, some of which are way, way out of the box. For example: http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/article/five-all-star-games-in-one/ Personally, the first thing I'd do is open the Home Run Derby to all players, not just the ones on the All Star teams. I mean, where's Ryan Howard last night?!?! He's not my favorite 1B, not the best 1B, but come on! That dude should seriously be in anything called a Home Run anything! Next, I'd create a sort of "All Star Week," freeing up the schedule from Monday - Thursday, with the actual game played on the Wednesday. Monday would be pomp and circumstance and I'd see what could be done to coordinate a Hall of Fame indunction around this time. Tuesday would be media circus day, coordinated with events at every MLB park to include autograph signings, kids run the bases, free showings of a classic movie such as The Natural on the jumboscreens, camping in the outfields, etc. Make All Star week an event in every major league city, not just one. Anyway, just suggestions to kill the time and ponder... Thoughts?
