Default All Star Game on. Who's watching?

Hopefully it is an exciting as last night's Home Run Derby.

Me! I have always loved the All-star game - of course I am a MLB junkie. It’s the only pro AllStar game that feels like a real game. I enjoy seeing all the studs playing together. Much better since they did away with the WS home field advantage nonsense. I’m fine with it being an exhibition.

Americans are watching the All Star game . Judge came to play! First pitch HR! How old is that kid? He’s adding to his legacy tonight.

Funny thing the Home run Derby had 7 out of the 8 hitters from the NL. Now in All Star Game 2 HR's by the AL.

Baseball is a unique game.

I am enjoying the game. You get a little bit of insight in to these guys make up. Most of them act like big kids just enjoying playing a game.

I guess I never thought that it was fair to base home field advantage on an exhibition game. I found it difficult to believe that would make them ďplay harderĒ which was the rationale. Whether they rotate home field like they did up until 2003 or base it on regular season record - like they will do now - either way seems better to me. One fanís opinion.

I like this too, they get to play without all the pressure of a real game on the line. And I think most of them really do try their best to be their best during the game. It can get tricky with pitchers, especially starters, but they make the best of it

Lots of Houston jerseys running around the field and dugout. Saw maybe one NY jersey ????. Have also seen that game over Dodgers look before....

It was a good game, 10 home runs, new Allstar Game record!

I'm not a fan of the all star game...(think its time the boys could be resting and getting healthy - like their opponents are..and too many things could go wrong with your star athletes during this game..all for nothing...jmo...)...

BUT.... good for breggy.. 'stros certainly represented!

now back to work boys.. #secondhalfstrong

5 of those home runs were retrieved by that 1 bullpen catcher. You know he was having fun last night.
