And by great i mean
The horrible part of all this is I COMPLETELY agree with the Jays manager on requesting he doesn't pitch. Playing on 3 days rest just to get your ace in against a division rival (yanks), and then playing the game after the break against your other one (sox), is an applaudable effort by Halladay.
The all-star game just keeps getting better and better. Unfortunately, you have to GET to the world series to have the outcome of the game mean anything. And getting there still is (and should be!) the top priority for every team.
