deGrom and Chapman have been a joy to watch. Don't get a chance to watch NL baseball that much, but I'm loving these young guys and the future talent of baseball.

B
ecause it's an ad for general motors. It's not really about rewarding the best player.
Many charities need vehicles, too. It seems like it would be better marketing to give it to, say a boys and girls club in the winner's city than the player.

The companies that buy the commercial time just before it probably disagree.
 
You realize nobody gives a shit about commercial sponsors, right?

This is why the commercial is now part of the award ceremony and will soon be right on the uniforms.
I'm looking forward to the day Texeira has Massengil plastered across his ass.

American League’s triumph over the National League in last night’s All-Star Game drew a 7.8 overnight rating (in the largest 56 out of 210 markets) according to Sports Business Journal’s Austin Karp.

Per Karp that’s down from last year’s 7.9. We had last year at an 8.0 but that’s splitting hairs. We have the record-low at 7.9 in 2011. Karp chalks the drop from last year to a big 31 percent drop in the NYC market.

Karp correctly notes that doesn’t necessarily translate to lowest viewership ever, we’ll have to wait until this afternoon to find out. Indeed the overnight rating for Monday’s Home Run Derby was lower than it was in 2013, but Monday’s affair wound up with around half a million more viewers than the 2013 event.

Per Karp Kansas City was the top local market with a 31.4 rating and host market Cincinnati had 22.8 rating.

I don't think you'll get maximum exposure putting the ad on his crotch. That's why I selected his ass.
