Default Do You Care about the ASG?

I've heard over the years that the ASG has lost its prestige. Do you agree? If so, how has the game lost its pedigree?

I still enjoy watching it but interleague play has taken some of it's luster.

Agreed. Inter-league play has a sense of competition, while the ASG seems more "buddy-buddy" than any regular season games, in my opinion.

I like it more since they put some meaning in it

I think the reason that it has lost it's luster is the over-exposure of professional sports on tv today.
When I was a kid in the 1970s, I looked forward to the All-Star game because you never had a chance to see National League players until the playoffs/World series each year. Not every Red Sox game was on television when I was young and you obviously didn't have ESPN, cable tv, satellite tv, etc. which shows you highlights of every game on a loop for each morning.

Also, with interleague play and free agency, players move from team to team and league to league on a regular basis. Back before free agency, or in it's infancy, there was more league pride. It was National League players vs. American League players. Now players change teams and leagues too frequently, so that "Us vs. Them" mentality has been lost.

Most all of MLB and certainly the All Star Game mean almost nothing to me. I could pretty much care less.

What I don't like is all the pomp and ceremony. Why can't they just play baseball? Everything else is a distraction to me.

I get tired of the unwritten rules. Puig is exciting, but hasn't played enough so shouldn't be in the game? 38 games isn't enough, but Rivera has only pitched 34 innings. So less than four complete games is enough to be considered great??? (Sorry, but I'm still not a fan of the credit given to the closer...)

I love the ASG, I loathe the HR Derby and Chris Berman.
