Time to cut All-Star rosters
Question of the Day
By the early 1990s, the game had become almost solely an exhibition.
When Carlos Beltran played the entire game last season, he became the first player to do so since 1997.
There now are 16 teams in the National League, 14 in the American and 32 players on each roster for tonight’s All-Star Game.
Major League Baseball should cut each roster to 25 and get rid of the phony player representation rule. It reeks of receiving a Little League participation trophy.
The Washington Nationals, Kansas City Royals, Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Texas Rangers know they don’t really have any All-Stars.
For everyone else, including deserving All-Stars, to pretend otherwise is a sham.
