Just thought it would come up. I'll start it off with some commentary:

The All-Star game is dumb.

So with Rivera being dealt for nothing, we are only a Francisco removed from Wells being dealt away for nothing which, when you think about it, is really something of an accomplishment.

I had the All-Star Game mostly cause there was nothing else on.  Horribly boring game.

I missed it entirely. Sounds like a good call. Romero or Bautista do anything?

Bautista made a nice catch and went 1 for 2. Romero ate lots of sunflower seeds.

I made the comment on twitter that this was the most exciting MLB All Star game I have seen this season. Someone is arguing against this. Oh the internet how you entertain me.

Clearly, the other MLB All Star game was so much better. Unfortunately, I missed that one too. :o

Ok now I have two people hooked.  I told one to re-read my original post and they still don't get it.

Clearly, they feel the All Star softball game was more exciting . . . and, I agree with them, if for no other reason than that it had significantly more Kate Upton.

AAA All-Stars vs. MLB All-Stars?  :-\ At least it gives us a look at some upcoming prospects and more importantly, its something different.

The best part is, knowing the Dodgers and considering the fact the Jays sent cash along with Rivera, the Jays could actually end up with a prospect much better than trading Rivera should ever return.

No. The answer is simple. Tell the managers and the teams that it's a real game and needs to be treated as such. Cut the rosters down in terms of position players, eliminate the one player per team rule and have at it.

Remember when the players actually took the All Star game seriously?
