The home run derby was boring.
I remember as a kid the All Star Game meant something. Pete Rose ending Ray Fosse's career, seeing Steve Garvey and Mike Schmidt on the same field. Nolan Ryan, Steve Carlton and Goose Gossage on the same field. Getting to stay up late to watch a guy hit the game winner. Heck, I even remember going to Cincinnati Riverfront Stadium and voting for my favorite players.
Now though, the All Star game is just a joke. Baseball used to be the AMerican past time, but now it is a joke.
