Nah, the All-Star game winner has no bearing on home field advantage in the World Series anymore. That was scrapped 2 years ago.

Not anymore. They changed that rule a couple of years ago. This game is literally just for fun.

I think the grand slam against his team last year proved enough...

He is punishing him.

EDIT: For some reason all of the other messages didn't appear on a refresh. This was just covering what others said above.

Agree. But what do you expect from the Dodgers! I really dislike them, going way back when we played in the same division, dislike everything about them then and now.

Anyone know when 1st pitch is? I'm going to guess about 8 or a little after since they have to do the introductions?

I noticed that too.  The NL manager said he is 21 and needs to earn the right to bat higher

You know what I say?

**** the Doyers. God I hate that team 100x more than any other team in MLB.

Anyone remember the song 92.9 created for our late season run for the division with the Dodgers in ‘91.  

“Beat LA, b e a t LA, beat LA”

How the piss is Sonny Gray an All Star or Tanaka?

Sonny Gray made it because every team has to have a player and he's the Reds player. But he's been pretty good this year. It's not like he's having a bad season and is on the team just because.

  • 17 GS, 90 1/3 IP, 74 H, 38 R, 36 ER, 9 HR, 33 BB, 103 SO, 3.59 ERA, 3.35 FIP, 1.185 WHIP

I have no idea how Tanaka is on the team. I can't explain that one.

Pitchers that pitched Sunday are banned from participating. They have to replace them. Tanaka got in because Stroman is hurt.

Surely they could have found someone better than a guy with a nearly 4 ERA.

Maybe, it could have just came down to Tanaka is an arm they can use. Tanaka himself said he was shocked they picked him.

Reds got that other young kid too though so that's 2 reps for them. Unless Gray was named 1st?

Castillo has been the better pitcher this year, so I would hope Gray wasn't named first.
