Seriously? It's been talked about ad naseum even during the homerun derby most of the time. And I believe one year I remember Griffey wasn't going to hit in it because it messed up his swing the years before that he had hit in it. But he ended up hitting and I think ended up winning it that year.
As for Bay, if it is the nations thing again I'm thinking Morneau would be our rep. He's tearing the cover off the ball.
Guys I don't want in it:
Barry Bonds for US president.
