I'm looking forward to it but I wouldn't say "jacked up" and no I'm not going.

Heck yeah, I'm excited! I'll be even more pumped up if:

1. Either Moose or Butler participates in the Home Run Derby
2. The Royals are less than 5 games out of first and playing well leading into the game.

If any of you get a chance to go to the Home Run Derby - do it. It is wildly entertaining in person. While it was nice to be able to go to the game, it just seemed like another game to me.

HRD is a blast, no pun intended. Go if you can.

If I could afford to go to either the home run derby or the game I would in a heart beat. It's something I've always wanted to experience, and with it being played in beautiful Kaufman this year would make it that much more sweet. But tickets are out rageous. Major league sports are becoming less for the common fan, and more for the affluent. It's sad really.

Wish I was going to the game, but I don't have that kinda jack to buy a ticket at the moment. Also helps that I went to the one in Busch as few yrs ago. I'd prob find a way to pony up the money if I hadn't gone then. Just not important enough to me. Royals baseball has been shitty for so fucking long it's really hard for me to get excited about anything that franchise does. They seem to be getting better. Which sucks because baseball has always been my favorite sport. They've been so bad for so long, mis-managed and owned for so long, that now it's to the point for me where I could give a fuck if they Royals moved right outa town.

Keep in mind, MLB sets the face value for the tickets. I think they were $250 in 2009 in STL.

This seems like a good deal - HRD tickets plus a pair to 10 games for under $500.

I was looking at the extended forecast, and it looks to be swamp-ass inducing hot, complete with the lovely Missouri humidity. We'll see.

Knowing my kid, she'll end up wanting to go to Oceans of Fun with her friends when the weekend comes.

This is true but they still basically have to make sure everyone gets a chance to play instead of sticking with whoever is hot and/or dominating. Personally I think the impact it has on the World Series is stupid. If I am a contending NL team or fan I really do not want to see someone from the Cubs, Astros, or Padres deciding whether my team gets home field advantage

I pretty much agree with this. While the outcome "mattering to someone" now does add some intrigue to the game I think it's a dumb way to decide homefield advantage for the WS when most of the players in the ASG won't even be in the WS. Billy Buter gets a game winning hit for the A.L. which in turn gives the Yankees home field? Puke. I'd rather the N.L. team get homefield than for one of ours to help the Yankees in any way. Or a Cubs player doing the same for the N.L. giving the Cardinals home field? I'm sure Cubs fans love that idea.

How about the team with the best record who's in the WS gets homefield advantage? Teams are tied?... go to tie breakers. It's just to logical to work I guess.

Didn't it used to alternate between the AL & NL (I could be making that up)? I think the current way is completely ridiculous, but I guess getting HFA because it's your league's year wouldn't have been much better. Then again, it's a pretty ridiculous league, considering the fact that all teams don't even play by the same rules.

Yes it used to alternate. Now it's a bidding war based mostly on who has the newest stadium or at least spent a lot to renovate.

edit... upon further review you were probably talking about the World Series. That used to alternate too.

Heh. So stupid. I remember they implemented that thinking that it would make more people watch because the ratings were slacking. I seriously doubt it's made more people watch.

And I seriously doubt any Royals or Twins player cares If the Yankees or Rangers get HFA.

I would rather see this than the Pro Bowl where the players make a half hearted at best attempt to play or win the game. Here at least there is incentive for most of the players to make an effort.

I'm in favor of the home field advantage thing.

Not only does the game become more compelling, Its technically not fair to give the team with the best record HFA because the two leagues don't play by the same rules.

& I think everyone cares. No one wants to fuck up the game for the entire league.

They switched to making HFA for the winner because in 2008? The game went like 14 innings before selig called it a tie because there wasn't anyone left to pitch. The managers had played everyone trying to appeal to the fans and there literally wasn't anyone left to play. That's when Selig took backlash because he called the game and made the change to "this time it counts"

Why? It's the only all star game that means anything. I know you're a purist but it at least makes the game a little more meaningful and puts some(while not a lot) strategy into it.

That may not be much over face value.

Each strip (IIRC) includes a ticket to fanfest, the Futures game, the Home Run Derby and the ASG itself.

Face value for the Derby and Game three years ago in STL was $240. Imagine it's somewhere between $275-$300 now.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there's a premium being applied to that price.

But it's a once-in-a-lifetime event, resulting in scarce tickets.

but it is what it is... Its the Chiefs and Royals. This is the closest they will get to anything meaningful for the forseeable future. Might as well enjoy a small taste of the good life before reality slaps this city in the face.

I’m getting pretty sick of hearing about the All-Star game, actually. Today’s morning of talk radio consisted of: more whining about Butler not getting into the HRD, an interview with KC’s mayor about how great KC is, and 810’s nonstop pandering about the commemorative booklet (or whatever) they created. I’m glad we have a station that carries ESPN radio so I could hear some legit sports news.

This is absolutley true, but it's a shame that MLB cranks up the prices so freaking high that average fan has zero chance of seeing the game live. I'd love to be able to take my daughter to this, but looking at potentially $2,000+ total to do it just for the two of us is just insane.

The game haas become a marketing tool that panders to businesses and the rich and famous, and that's too bad.

I can't wait!

I don't understand this at all.

Don't really care. What I hope is that the national spotlight shines on the ineptitude of this franchise for the last 20 years, thus bringing much shame and admonishment to the Glass family.

For fans like you and I, this is the ultimate goal. Unfortunately, not a single fuck will be given inside the Glass household for any negative press they receive.

First time he'll be at the K all year, and not a single Royal will be playing. But he'll get to watch some Cardinals!!!!

Just sell the team to the Sporting KC guys, FFS.

I don't like all star games at all. I think they are for casual fans. Of course if you want to watch an all star game where Kansas City players are represented all over the field you can watch the MLS All Star game July 25th 8:30 ET on ESPN2 as they take on Chelsea at PPL Park in Philly.

Regarding the Glass family and the current state of the Royals, it's like forgetting grandma has cancer for a few hours at the family reunion. Despite the shit baseball witnessed over the years, the K has been a pretty damn special place to me and I plan to shelf my cynicism for a few days and enjoy being out there when the spotlight hits. I certainly won't blame any Royals fan for feeling whatever way they feel though.

Count me in the group that doesn't understand spending a thousand dollars to see an exhibition game. I don't think I would pay that to see a World Series game. Maybe, but certainly not a sure thing.

I think the game is usually a snore when its on TV... But I guess you don't have to listen to Joe Buck if you are there.

Unfortunately the chances of anything like this are slim-to-none. The national media doesn’t really give 2 sh!ts that this thing is in KC, other than maybe some chatter about the fountains during the Homerun Derby. And even if they did, I doubt they would waste their time discussing how the franchise that currently occupies the stadium has been a laughingstock for 3 decades. And even if they did, they will fall into the “small markets simply cannot compete” stance that people like Glass have worked hard to make popular.

I doubt national media like ESPN want to make their agenda trashing owners of major sports franchises. I’ve never heard them say a single bad thing about Donald Sterling, and that guy is pretty much the devil.

i think alot of would like to see that, but the ASG is the wrong forum for that.

This will basically be a 2 or 3 day blow job from ESPN/FOX to MLB, The Glass family and the city of KC.

No, I was being hyperbolic. At least I think I was--no knowledge at all about the amount of games that Glass does or does not attend.

I do know, like most of you I'm sure, that he avoids interviews with the local media like the plague, which wasn't the case when he wanted local tax dollars.

I'm as big a baseball fan as anyone on this board and sadly I can't even say I'm excited about the ASG. It's cool that it's in KC and I hope it's a good game and visitors are impressed with the stadium and the city... but really I don't think it much matters if they are or aren't.

I don't know if it's because a couple of our players got snubbed in a game in our own city, or no Royal being in the HRD after we thought we were going to have one, or just what it is, but I'm not able to muster any excitement really and I find that disappointing.

Sadly, that sounds like the most intelligent move, by far. Save the energy for people who actually give a shit, like the Sporting ownership group.
