What horseshit. I say those pitchers suck it up and be men. You're fucking starting pitchers for Christ's sake. You'll live. Even worse was the announcers expecting fans to be happy with the decision. That sucks so bad. I hate ties in anything, but Ihate them the most in a sport that doesn't have ties.

EDIT: To make things worse, the first ever Ted Williams Award for All Star game MVP goes...to absolutely nobody. Fucking stupid. I wish this didn't piss me off so much, but it does.

You know, if you're gonna hold the game in Milwaukee, and it's coming to the point of a tie, there's only one way to end it and decide a winner....

SAUSAGE RACE~!

Anyone else see Selig wave feebly at the end of the bottem of 11th? In front of his OWN CROWD. Looked like he was dropping something in his pants.

What do they mean out of pitchers? Don Larsen and Warren Sphan were RIGHT THERE.

I see both sides here. Honestly, they made the right call, but it also says they have to do something about it in the future. I understand people being upset about the tie, but how upset would you be if you were a Mariners fan and Freddy Garcia got hurt because he wasn't properly rested, or, more importantly, Vincente Padilla, who could barely get loose to pitch in the first place. They need to stop only throwing the early guys 1 inning. If you're Barry Zito and can only pitch 1/3 of an inning, you pull yourself out. You show up, you get introduced, tip your cap, but let someone else pitch. They've either gotta have guys pitch longer or add 3 "alternate pitcher" spots, have those guys only be available should the game go to extra innings. They made the right call in a bad situation.

I completly agree BucsFan, the overprotecting is god damn awful...sheeshh...a great gamen ruined by this bullshit call...oh i can't throw another inning...uu uu...sheesh.

I love baseball to death, but people like Bud Selig have to go. Now he wants to ADD more players to roster...what is this fuckin football...i'm sorry im so pissed right now.

It was a GREAT game, everybody having fun, the pre game tributes, Posada's kid going to the lineup, Hunter's great catch, good offensive and defensive plays by everybody and they dump it all on a bullshit call because pitchers can't go more than an inning.

I agree that the call had to be made, but again, it shouldn't have come to this. And NO MVP, especially when it was named after Ted Williams...

Baseball better not go into a stoppage, because after all the problems that keep accumulating, it will all implode and ruin the national pastime.

Hey, I thought there was no cryogenics in baseball either, but I was wrong about that too.

Did they really not name an MVP? Even in a tie, they should have named an Most Outstanding Player if nothing else.

I can certainly understand not wanting to overuse pitchers. Enough guys beg out of this game as it is. We don't need to give them another excuse to spend the week on the golf course.

However, this brings up an interesting point that was being talked about on the local ESPN station yesterday. They interviewed Pete Rose several years ago and replayed the segment tonight, and talked much about it yesterday. He was making the point of why the NL won so many games during his era, and that was because they wanted to win and win badly, and they would do ANYTHING to get the victory. Pride was at stake, and if a pitcher need to go 7 innings to secure victory he would do it. That is interesting and prophetic in light of what happened tonight.

The AS Game has become nothing more than a side show and spectacle anyway. I don't see why, if they were so concerned with pitchers, that they couldn't have put a leftfielder on the mound. Anything would have been better than a tie.

People (meaning sportscasters and such) keep mentioning expanding rosters. That won't do shit. That will just mean coaches cramming more players into the first nine innings. The attitude of getting all the players in needs to go. I say just keep the starters in 3-5 innings, start subbing, and by then you can tell if there's a chance of extra innings or not so you can start using the remainder of their roster accordingly.

The pitchers just need to suck it up. Be men. I hate the overprotecting of pitchers, not just in the allstar game but in baseball in general. Dammit, give me some complete games from my starting pitchers!

Of course, Rose took it to the point of practically ending Ray Fosse's career....


Needless to say, if they are going to be worried about injuries DON'T PLAY THE GAME ANYMORE.

I disagree.

Leave it as a tie...who the hell cares who wins. It's not like the winning League gets home-field advantage for the World Series (which they should do, by the way.)

The pennant races are more important, anyway.

Honestly, I think it was yet more poetic justice this week. First Nash, and now Selig, who got the game he was creaming himself over, gets shat upon over the ending. Too bad it had to ruin a perfectly good game.

Here in Japan, all games (other than the season ending Japan Series) that go a full 12 innings are recorded as ties. Not that we would ever see this, because in Japan, the games only have a certain 2 hour window, that can only be extended by 30 minutes at most. The telecast usually picks up with the game in the 3rd inning already. And even with the score 4-3 with two out in the bottom of the ninth and the bases loaded on a 1-1 count, when the time is up, you'll still hear "We're so sorry, please tune in on the radio to follow the rest of the game!" before cutting to some stupid taped variety show.

So consider yourself lucky.

That said, I didn't see any of the players protesting that they couldn't finish the game. Many couldn't even be bothered to show up for the game in the first place. If these players care so little for the game, turning a game which is meant to be a big "thank you" for the fans into a big "f*** you" instead, why should we bother to care about them?

I agree that managers shouldn't be tryng to play everybody. It used to be an honor just to get named to the team and go. Not everyone needs to play in these things, and I bet that there are guys that would gladly sitout anyway.

A tie in sports is like going to the prom with your sister.

That's the reason that soccer will never catch on here. You invest all that time watching a game.. and then no one wins! A frickin draw!

We've seen strong pitchers over the years. There is no reason for the pitchers in the all star game not to suck it up and pitch more. I mean we saw what Randy Johnson and Curt S. did in the world series. Its sad that no one (in mlb) gives a shit about the all star game now.



I've torn myself apart.... and tried to figure out why... but the only answer i was ever given... that really fits..... is the fact... that women are crazy.

I think that has less to do with the players and more with the fans. I remember back when the Marlins first came into existence and Jeff Conine didn't play, I was pissed beyond belief. I was 12 at the time, sitting downstairs, watched the whole game waiting for Jeff Conine to get in and he never did. I probably cried, sadly.

If they're going to make it a rule that all teams should be represented than they should all play. If your a Kansas City Royal fan you want to see your Royal play, I mean it's not THEIR fault their team sucks.
