Over the years I have developed a love/hate relationship with the Major League Baseball All-Star game. On the one hand I love the idea of the best players from each league getting together on the same field and showing what it would be like if we could build a team from our favorite baseball cards where money and economics are of no consequence. It is the one time of year where every fan feels like the general manager of the New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox.
The game is a one-and-done proposition. You are not worried about pitch counts, team chemistry, or any of the other current buzzwords. You simply put the best players from each league on the playing field and see what the outcome will be.
