What to Read, When to Chat

Here's what we've got for you today:

Dave Sheinin waits longingly for a meeting between Ryan Howard and David Price.

Dave also reminds us that home field advantage wasn't just a gift for the Rays -- they helped earn it in the All-Star Game.

Join Dave today at 1 to chat about the Series.

This Series brings back fond and not-so-fond memories for Andy MacPhail and Stan Kasten, writes Tom Boswell.

Boz is sticking with his pick: Rays in seven. So far, all the Insiders are picking the Rays. Don't forget to register your own opinion.

Anyone else not care for the whole "winning league of the All Star game gets WS home field advantage" bit?

It's not the worst thing Bud Selig made happen, but for my money it's up there.

The two best alternatives are gong back to the pure rotation (NL home field once, then AL the next year), or having it tied to the interleague record of the leagues. I like tieing it to the interleague record because those games have an impact on the standings and reward a league for its depth, not just its stars. Teams let their starters go normal depth in interleague rather than the 1 or 2 inning show case. The managers don't feel an obligation to play everyone or protect players from overuse (except George Sherrill). Finally, an equal number of games would be played with and without the DH. In the All-star game, there either is a DH or there is not. Equal is more fair as long as there is a DH.
