In order for these games to have any level of interest from anyone other than those in attendance, you have to give these guys something to play for.

10-9 games where there is NO Defence and NO Hitting does not protray an accurate description of the game we all know and love.

These guys are all stars and there will be scoring. But man, they need some motivation to get them to play the game the way it's supposed to be played.

dangle a carrot. No better carrot than home ice in the finals.

And for the record, no team has won or lost the WS in Baseball because they didn't have home field. It's been rendered a non-issue really which is why no one had cried about it.
