So, I know there are a bunch of hypotheticals here, but hear me out:
- All-Star game winner gets homefield advantage for their League.
- Melky Cabrera was the MVP of the National League's victory in the All-Star game.
- Melky got caught juicing.
- Giants end up with homefield advantage and win the World Series.
Doesn't Selig have to change that rule now? What if this series went 7 games and the Giants got homefield advantage because one of their guys cheated? How fair is that? And I know the All-Star game was a blowout, but what if it wasn't? What if it was a 4-2 game or something like that, and Cabrera got MVP? That rule has to go.
Anyway, congratulations to the Giants. Amazed that this team of bums (Scutaro? Pagan? Really???) managed to come together so well. Great managing.
