Now Harper is Hamels’ teammate, on the National League All-Star team, an eight-home run and 25-RBI All-Star, while at least five others with deserving stats won’t be. Fan voting at its finest.
Back then, the fans picked the game's starters. That's all, the starters.
About six years ago, I was asked to head a committee of Hall of Famers to study the All-Star game and report to the commissioner on ways to improve its competitiveness and the experience for the players.
Let’s face it, marketing dollars and television have become more important than competition and credibility at this game and every game, except golf.

Schmidt seems to be the "old timer" (and man does that make ME feel old) who is aging the most gracefully. He seems pretty even-keeled on the various issues of contention (steroids, money, "new school" vs. "Old school" etc...). When he says something I don't get a cranky old man sense from him but a sense of a guy who genuinely thinks about what he is saying.
