Everyone had a good old time with the campaign to get Rory Fitzpatrick onto the NHL all-star team. So it seems like a bit of harmless fun for a group of Red Sox fans pushing to fill the all-star team with Lastings Milledge and the rest of the Washington Nationals (through technically Milledge is with the AAA Syracuse Chiefs).
Yeah, it’s a stupid little diversion. But are they stupid like a fox? Remember, the all-star game actually counts™ for home field advantage. So wouldn’t a fanbase so cocky about their team’s chances of making the World Series want to ensure their league has home field advantage? And what better way to ensure that than with the league-worst 7-18 Nationals?
