In our most recent poll, we asked you to predict the winner of this year's Midsummer Classic. Good work! Over half of you (55%) said the American League would pull off the win to gain home field advantage for the World Series.
The other 45% of you... well, there's always the next decade. We mean that in the most encouraging way possible, you know. Seriously, extra baseball was looming for a minute there. You can't get much closer than being down a run with the bags full.
So, we had a great time liveblogging the All-Star festivities over at Deadspin. It was a success. That is to say, nothing was broken and the Gawker hamster, Nibbles came off the DL after just a few innings. As we stated early in the game, Tim McCarver and Joe Buck make it easier to be funny.
Which brings us to our next poll! Who, of the 5 choices given, is the worst (current) prime time baseball announcer? This may be the toughest poll yet. Seriously. They're all terrible in their own special way.
Feel free to go on the record in the comments section!
