Wow. What a game. Longest All Star game ever! Too bad the National League lost, because there were some great plays. I felt the best play was when Nate McLouth nailed Dioner Navarro at the plate in the bottom of the 11th.
It was almost disaterous, as both clubs were on their last pitchers. Who knew who would have picked up the ball. This is just great. The American League wins yet again and get home field advantage in the World Series yet again. Too bad, because the Cubs look great this year, and they are FANTASTIC in Wrigley. If they make it, let's hope it doesn't go to seven.
Jeers to Dan Uggla. This could be perhaps the worst baseball performance by any 1 player in All Star Game history. He committed 3 errors. He went 0-4 at the plate, including 3 strikeouts and a double play with the bases loaded.
Cubs players looked Good. Zambrano picked off Milton Bradley to top off his 2 inning, 1 hit 1 strikeout performance. Carlos Marmol shook off his horrible outing from Saturday vs the Giants...(I was there...it was disgusting) to pitch 1 inning in relief, getting 2 K's. Aramis Ramirez drew a walk in his only at bat of the game, the only fear Fukudome generated was in the anonuncer who pronounced his name, going 0-2 with a strikeout. Ryan Dempster showed he belonged on the Team by striking out the side in the 9th inning.
