These past few days are a major reason why I could never live in Europe. No baseball = mo problems.

Agreed. Although I like the institution of the All-Star game. It far surpasses something like the Pro Bowl, played after the season is over. I just wish they'd go back to playing on Wednesday instead of Friday.

It was a nice little breather. Got out of the house for a few days without having to check my cell phone to see the score.

However, I'm very excited to have the good guys back.

Ah, but they have the Tour de France to listen to.

As a player, the break was absolutely vital. As a fan, I think it stinks.

I'm sure the players love it. That doesn't mean I have to. :cool:

You can always go outside and play, like we did we were growing up [late80s-early90s]

Don't be mean to Europe, is all I am sayin' :)

Is anyone else really pumped for this second half?

Just thinking about being in a race for the division again with a legitamate shot at getting back to the World Series. I think last year made me forget how much fun watching baseball can be.

I hear you.

The past 2 days , I really didn't know what to do with myself. The day's much better when you have a ball game to look forward to. :smile:

everyone needs to chill...old man contreras needed the rest, and bobby needed the rehab. perfect timing for some days off if you ask me, and if days of no baseball make the team better, freakin' A.

They really shouldn't go back to playing the day after the break. I really liked when the Sox returned to playing a four-game series starting on Thursday, however, and having that extra day off when it was more necessary.

Don't get me wrong, I love Europe to visit...but there are a few things I would miss too much.

...and I already tore a ligament in my knee this year playing baseball so that ship has sailed.

I had a relaxing couple of days. It's nice to be stress-free for awhile. Plus, I went to this carnival last night.

I got that, but I doubt many others here will, aside from West and Ode, and maybe Voodoo.

For the fans, yes. I think it helped the Sox.

Our starting pitchers - with the possible exception of Danks - needed those days.
