We want to see guys hit, not get intentionally walked.

I agree. Called strikes should not be allowed either.

You cant allow homefield advantage in the World Series to be determined on an All Star and then expect it to be played like an exhibition.

Don't get me started on the "homefield advantage".

It IS an exhibition game, isn't it?

Also, the ASG is the ONLY time the DH makes any sense to me, and they don't use it there! Who wants to see a pitcher bat in an ASG?

I was thinking that exact same thing too...and it would be an opportunity to get another hitter into the game.

The All Star game is a joke.
