HEY NOW, HANK BLALOCK: That's part of why I love Chris Berman- obscure "Larry Sanders Show" references. Tonight the American League won the All-Star Game, and with it homefield advantage in the World Series, with a 7-6 victory. Hank Blalock won it with a home run, but the MVP award went instead to Angel Garret Anderson, who the night before had won the Home Run Derby.
Also- last week I predicted that the AL would win after Armando Benitez gave up the game-winning homer, and that Benitez would be traded to the Yankees the following day. Armando didn't get in the game, but the AL did indeed win on a homer, and Benitez reportedly will in fact be traded to the Yankees today.
