Not Really Fantasy Baseball specific but...

Postby LCBOY » Wed Jun 11, 2003 3:15 pm

I just heard this on the radio. For this year's All-Star Game, the players will NOT be wearing their own team uniforms but "National" and "American" League uniforms. This is GARBAGE!! What is this, the NFL Pro-Bowl?! Urrggghh!!! :-C :-P :-t

Hell .. You're not that far off .. Don't forget Larry too ..and Smoltz is a lock .. ..

I'd say
Sheff ..
Smoltz ..
Javy ..
Furcal ..
Larry ..
five is enough ..

Actually I think they should just totally sell out if they are going to do it. We could have the NL Allstars brought to you by Viagra .. Put them in White Uniforms with pictures of little blue pills all over them .. VS. AL Allstars brought to you by Dupont, and they could play in full color 2" wide pinstripes ... All the colors of the rainbow ..

I guess I'm in the minority here. I don't like the look of players wearing their team uniforms. It looks disorganized and promotes the individual over the team.

Even if it is an All-Star game, it's still a team sport and a team should wear one uniform. Also, if I were a player and earned a spot, I'd definitely want an All-Star jersey. I'm sure all the jersey wearing wannabe's will want them too.

I think the players should wear AL or NL team jerseys. Not their individual team jerseys. Like Groundhog said "It looks disorganized"
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I am sorry but I must disagree. This is not the NFL or the NBA. They have been wearing their own uniforms since 1933. I don't look it looks disorganized. It has a certain charm about it.
