All Star Game Newsbeat
Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Watching the pre-game on MLB Network, I was struck by how likeable most of the game’s great young players are.

With this attitude fans might as well take a break from the sport during the All Star Break.
Rob Neyer’s perspective on the game.
OK, I couldn’t make it to the finals. First, I just can’t take Chris Berman for that long. I tried muting but I just couldn’t take the hair any longer. Second, it was just too boring. Not as boring as the old format, maybe. But, still too boring to finish.

The All-Star game just isn’t the same. It used to be an event. Players in one league wanted to show the players in the other league that their team was better. It’s was also one of the only chances for fans to see players outside our home team’s league.
That’s not the way it is now. With interleague play, MLB.TV, and the games available on cable TV, we get to see any player just about any time we want. It’s also become a game with 1,000 players on the roster where everybody has to participate. Like the NBA’s and NFL’s games, it’s a meaningless exhibition. Although MLB wants us to think it really matters, everybody knows better.
I will probably watch the game because I’m a baseball nut who watches a lot of baseball. But, if my wife brings home a good movie, I’m might just skip it and watch the highlights in morning.

Instead of a set number of “outs” per round, each player this year will have five minutes to hit as many home runs as possible. A running clock will begin counting down upon release of the first pitch, though it will stop for any home run hit during the final minute. The clock will stop immediately after those home run balls land and will not begin again until a non-home run ball lands or the batter swings and misses.

What a mess.

The key to exploiting the system was realizing that—are you ready for this?—there is zero verification surrounding the most important piece of information supplied in the voting process: your email address. The voting page asks you to supply an email address, along with some other information such as a birthdate, a zip code, and a favorite team, but unlike most systems that at least try to implement some form of security, MLB does not require you to validate your email address. There’s no confirmation email sent with a “click here to verify” or “use this five-digit verification code” message, some way of ensuring that the email address you supplied in the voting process is actually yours.
