    …that the All-Star game returns to being purely an exhibition and that no post-season games are scheduled because of it.

    ….that night games in the post-season start at a reasonable time (I live on the East Coast and can not stay up until 1 AM to watch the end of a game)

    Pablito has got more in front, but he’s also got quite a lot behind him.

    i would pick a player like chavez(at the time of the deal) a million times over tejada. Sure it looks like a mistake, but you can’t predict future injuries.
