i noticed nl is wearing yellow and al wearing black. do they always give the teams the jersey colors of the host team or is this something new?

oh and jason bay will be batting cleanup (not as a favor but probably so they can yank him early and pinch hit for him)

really... how come the NL gets the cool pirate looking black jerseys and the AL is stuck with those crappy yellow ones? doesnt seem right. (AL would probably win in pink tutus)

very surreal to see arod and jeter in pirates (AL) jerseys. and the fans at the park, fully embracing the culture of losing, boo jeter when he steps in the cage

Excellent point....plus its very damp and muggy in the Burgh tonight...not optimal for ball flight....

only 440' to the river and only 1 has been hit there in the history of the park. big papi said he'd hit a couple. i think he can do it.
