I personally don't care much for all star games, and really haven't watched more than a minute or two for years, but I am watching this year.

Why?

I want to see Tim Wakefield and Zach Duke get in the game. Two guys who play the game the way it SHOULD be played.

Um, how SHOULD it be played?

I think I rather see Lincecum and Santana they may play it the way it SHOULD be played better.

At risk of having my Local Union Pirates card revoked, I will be far more disappointed if Wakefield doesn't play than if Duke or Sanchez don't play.

I agree 100%. I want to see Wakefield.

I am just glad Duke is there. The kid worked hard and turned himself around this year. But even when he struggles, he says all the right things, never points fingers, never makes excuses. In addition, I have been impressed by a couple of personal dealings with him.

Well we didn't get to see any of the 3. This was one of the worst all-star games in my memory.

YEP...Wasted 2 1/2 hours of my life.

You would have thought he could have put one of the Pirates in the game....and announcers said that the AL manager said that Wakefield would not play unless it was a long game.
