American League Keeps On Rolling

Carl Crawford: All-Star superheroThe American League's MVP hero of Tuesday night's All-Star game was Carl Crawford. The Tampa Bay Rays outfielder robbed a home run from Brad Hawpe in the seventh inning, a shot off Boston Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon that would've broken the 3-3 tie.

During the very next inning, Detroit Tigers centerfielder Curtis Granderson tripled and scored the go-ahead run to give the AL a 4-3 victory. Make that seven straight games since 2002’s 7-7, 11-inning tie at Miller Park and a 12-0-1 mark since the National League's last win in 1996.

So which AL team will have home field advantage in this year's World Series?

Everyone thinks their team is World Series bound when the season first starts. The reality hits. It's called the All-Star Break.

My husband turned to me after the game and said, "That game was short and sweet, just how I like it."

I had to bite my tongue.

At least the NL made it close. Do we have to wait another friggin' decade for a win, or is even THAT too much to ask? Ridic ...

Meh. Not having home field advantage didn't seem to hamper the Phillies all that much last year.
