I have no interest in the ASG. I watch a ton of baseball and use these days as a break to get away from it for a few days. Probably like many of the players. A little time to not think about baseball.

Seeing Harper out of uniform like that (no undershirt, jersey unbuttoned to the second button) somehow made me think of Ted Kluszewski and his cutoff sleeves.

I love Harper as a player, but there's a fine line between "having fun" and "being a jerk."

Would have been much better without Joe Buck and John Smoltz announcing. They are horrible no talented biased jerks. Can't stand Buck in any way, shape, or form.

I love the All Star game. Got to go to San Diego last year and it was a great time. As to Harper, he is an amazing physical specimen. His spread in the ESPN Body issue a couple years back Greek gods envious.

Baseball is the only sport that is really set up to have an All Star game that closely resembles a real game. If you get a chance to go to one live, it is also quite a show. I am hoping to get tickets to the one in DC next year...come on, contacts!

I'm surprised Buck could even call the game, without his boy toy Schwarber not in it.

I would have liked the game more if Conforto had gotten the GWRBI.

I too really love the all star game and all the festivities surrounding it. It is a cool experience to have live if you're a big fan of the game.

Everyone hates on Buck...I used to hate on Buck...he's not that bad...I just wish he didnt have to do every major sporting event there is!!!!!! I like Schmoltzy! Hated the talking to players live thing...whats next the pitcher telling what pitch is coming next and why to the television audience?
