Prediction is the National League in extras.

If we all agree that the nfl pro bowl is the worst game, is baseball 2nd worst.

The conforming uniforms are stupid.  Part of the beauty of the ASG was everyone wearing their team uniforms.

First pitch is scheduled for a few minutes before midnight, the coverage is what starts at the listed time.

That would be basketball, followed closely by hockey.  Baseball is really the only sport where the all star game actually resembles the real thing.

Yeah are they getting ready for the operating theatere?

This. If you don't play defense in the baseball ASG then you will get skewered.

I usually hate all star games in sports since no one plays hard (I get that no one wants to injure anyone in a meaningless game in the NHL or NFL for example) but baseball is basically a no contact sport so it tends to be pretty close to a 'real' game. I will probably tune in.

I'm sitting with a drink in hand, all ready to watch then they announce Shoepisser coming up after the break. Listening to these made me forget this was fox for a minute.

Are the Canadian Flags on the Blue Jays in case somebody forgot that Toronto is in Canada? Even though they haven't played there in almost 2 years.
 
2021-07-13 7:55:54 PM  
What in the ass? Two Pirates starting in the NL?

I mean, I wouldn't mind the US annexing Toronto. It is a fun city to visit. Might help the Leafs make the SCF sometime in the next 40 years

Time to honor the great Colorado Hero Hammerin' Hank.

Friend of mine is still bitter he can't see the game in Atlanta. He did his part in 2020 and then that good act cascaded to well, the game in Colorado and him missing out.

Yeah.. it seems like they really went "well, we already had all this Atlanta stuff planned.. can't change it now"

Nice tribute to Hank.  Freddie escorting Billie onto the field was nice.

/you're not crying, I'm crying
//met him once
///to say he was nice would be an understatement

I guess I'm kind of okay with it, because screw it, it's Hank Aaron. Hell, you could talk me into Manfred coming on the field and going "fark it, we don't recognize Bonds anymore, Henry is the HR King" But yeah, it is weird to do an Aaron special in Colorado but I guess not super weird.

Mike Milbury thinks the uniforms look great.
 
2021-07-13 8:05:23 PM  
Never thought of this before: does the player(s) of the host city get to use their own locker or do they give it up to someone else?
 
2021-07-13 8:05:37 PM  
hey, its George Washington!

They look like an afterthought.

Nice version by George Washington. Also, I'm kind of a fan of the suit even though no way I could pull that look off

Considering he passed away earlier this year, it would've happened regardless where the game took place.

KingKauff: Never thought of this before: does the player(s) of the host city get to use their own locker or do they give it up to someone else?


I would think they could use it right. Because the host would be the home team so they would be using their own lockerroom. In that case, it'd be silly to move their stuff. But I guess no one has ever asked that question for sure

Only the first president could.

Man, I'm losing track of time. I thought he had passed away last year (still would make sense for honors this year with that though). No clue why I thought it was that long ago

I love how there are (at least, I wasn't paying super close attention) 100% more former tigers there, than current ones. And the former tigers are starting, while the current one MIGHT see 1/3 of an inning.

Detroit: we're awesome at trading our best players

I wanted the Pirates guy to be driving like a Honda Accord or a Ford Focus

I hope Joe Buck gets severe diarrhea for "You know what they say, it's not an All-Star game until you hear Coolio"
 
2021-07-13 8:18:34 PM  
Are they playing this game tonight?
 
2021-07-13 8:19:30 PM  
49 minutes to get to the first pitch.
 
2021-07-13 8:19:50 PM  
Everything I've seen says the game was supposed to start an hour ago. get the fark on with it.

Yeah, that was a cornball move by Buck.

Vlad trying to decapitate max. Yikes.
 
2021-07-13 8:21:41 PM  
Vladdy just about decapitated Scherzer.
 
2021-07-13 8:21:50 PM  
That'll wake you right up, damn.
 
2021-07-13 8:21:56 PM  
Ok, the Canada patch is badly placed with Toronto but what the hell is up with the US flag patches. We've got a blood red flag on one team and a blue lives matter flag on the other. Just ugly designs.

And Max almost dies on the second batter. Damn that was speedy
 
2021-07-13 8:22:42 PM  
Is that a floating mastercard logo that we'll have to look at every pitch too?
 
2021-07-13 8:23:44 PM  
Well, last time Vlad saw Scherzer he killed the ball with the bases loaded.

I mean, everyone has their fetish. In that case, it should probably be illegal, but everyone has their fetish.

I'll have to try and remember to check the ratings in Japan.

last time I saw Ohtani pitch, he crapped the bed against Yankees. He already looks more steady tonight.

Over/under is 11, and under being the overwhelming majority over the past 15 ASGs. I knew I should've put some on the damn under.

You expected Sinclair taking over the RSNs to -improve- the production?

Of course not. But it's just refreshing to not have to look at that abomination they came up with.
