Though All-Star Games are designed to honor star players and are played for the fans, the game itself is…quite pointless.
Especially in the MLB, where the league eliminated the whole “it counts now” vibe.
After the MLB announced the game would no longer have World Series home-field implications in 2016, the league attempted to add incentive for winning teams. Nevertheless, the game hasn’t become any more intriguing, according to those jaded fans.

Placing a runner on second base in extra innings would end the game…quickly as hell. It’s also objectively not baseball.
It didn’t work in the World Baseball Classic, and it won’t work now.
