The All Star Game used to be very meaningful before interleague play and rampant free agency. As I kid, I couldn't wait for the All Star Game and was excited for the entire week before. You got to see players, fighting for league pride, face each other who would never face each other in their entire careers.

Now it is an MTV clown show.

But I think that is just keeping with modern society. For better or worse, the owners decided years ago that having two distinct league where the champions meet in the World Series (or later a modest two division winners playing each other first) was just too boring for people and have tinkered with almost every aspect of the game. I want baseball back not more of the same.
