As Al noted, the voting has begun. Being relatively new to this community - not having found the site until last off season, I don't know what the consensus is on this, but
I think the ASG deciding home team for the WS is completely asinine. It's an exhibition game. This is thin-skinned Selig's overreaction to a media overreaction.
A more fair determinant would be best overall record. Bud told me in a letter that it couldn't work because of needing to make hotel reservations, etc. in advance - BS! It's not narrowed down any more this way.
So, here's my proposal to stop the madness. Vote for the AL (American League, not Al). Vote often. Vote for the worst player at each position -- maybe we could keep a little board of who to vote for. If fans of NL contenders did this enough (heck, even if the other league did, too), the game would become such a farce that MLB would HAVE to make a change.
