You Want An Edge to Your All-Star Game?

This will do it:

    Baseball owners unanimously approved commissioner Bud Selig’s proposal to have the league that wins the All-Star game get home-field advantage in the World Series.

    Selig came up with the plan following last year’s All-Star game, which ended in a 7-7, 11-inning tie when both leagues ran out of pitchers.

    “This energizes it. This gives them something to really play for,” Selig said. “People pay a lot of money to see that game. They deserve to see the same intensity they see all year long. Television people pay a lot of money for the game. It was not and should not be a meaningless exhibition game.” [AP]

I think it’s a great idea, although the players may resent having to actually pay attention during the game, but I still think Selig is a prevaricating Wormtongue.
