Bryce Harper's radical idea on how to change the All-Star Game

posted by Kravitz -

“It’d be great if let’s say the two leading vote-getters by the fans did a draft system and could pick from both sides,” he said Monday. “So I could be facing Max Scherzer today — I mean, nobody sees that. It would be a lot of fun to do something like that to make it a little more competition to face somebody on your team, like if [Clayton] Kershawwas facing Justin Turner, or Chris Sale facing Mookie Betts. That’d be a lot of fun.” - Harper 

Here's the thing Bryce...the NFL and NHL have tried this, and while I can't speak for the NHL, it failed miserably in the NFL. Sounds like a nice idea in theory, but part of the intrigue in the ASG is simply to see the best from each league face-off. I'm all for tinkering the game of baseball, but leave this one alone.
