I have never been a big fan of the "all star" festivities in any of the sports. The NBA used to be good, but even that has gotten tiresome.


festivites and the games suck. MLB game is by far the most watchable though. do they still have the stupid stipulation that the winning league gets homefield in the WS??

No, finally they realized how retarded that idea was.

Such a risky proprosition though, because he is gonna hit the open market after the season.

yea man. its gonna be crazy to see how all these teams play it, and who folds first and to what degree. if its Boston or NY, Os are gonna try to rape them. But if you're either team, you dont want the other getting him. Not just for this season, but you have to figure whoever trades for him can potentially have a leg up in free agency.

I don't think whoever trades for him will have that much of an advantage. He is going to get crazy money from a bunch of teams thrown his way. Boston doesn't have much to give, Dombrowski gave away our farm system.

it can possibly be an advantage in the way of him acclimating himself to the city and team, enjoying himself, and ultimately winning the 'chip. Not automatic that it will be an advantage, but it could be. Like Paul George and OKC.

AYE, but its apples to oranges. NBA, there are funky ass rules and a whack ass cap system that mi,its what some teams can and can't offer a player. MLB, its just a fucking bidding war that either the Yanks or Sox win 9 outta 10.

Dodgers, Angels, and Cubs are in the same boat.

I'll tell you one thing, if the Yanks are gonna make that huge deal for a "superstar," give me Machado over Harper. I want nothing to do with Harper.

I don't know that I would go so far as to say I want nothing to do with him, but I would prefer Machado for sure.

im just speaking in terms of what it would realistically take to get him. not interested in my team making him the highest paid player in the game, or ever, and the fact that we have plenty in the OF and offensively as it is. Now, if he came cheap, and we actually needed him, then sure.

I hear you./ Personally, the sox need more pitching. Price is a bitch and can't pitch in the playoffs, and E-Rod just went down, might not pitch again this year.

i guess it speaks to the ratings they generate. People always complain about East Coast bias and Yankee fatigue this and that, but they keep showing up to the stadium and on the tv.
