Arrgh - Hate Fox Sports

An amazing Major League Baseball All-Star game tonight at Yankee Stadium. Low-scoring, clutch hits, great defense (besides Dan Uggla), the drama of another potential tie, and an incredibly close finish.

A 4:50 minute game over 15 innings. It was worth seeing every minute of it. But now at 1:40 stinking AM, before announcing the MVP of the game, Fox Sports has taken two full commercial breaks.

Finally, for the love of all that is holy, they tell us. The MVP is JD Drew (although he really should be DJ Drew) of the Boston Red Sox. Well deserved for his 2-run tying HR and getting the key walk that moved the eventual winning run to third base with less than two outs.
