In order to help ensure an AL (and therefore Sox) homefield advantage in the World Series, who should we vote for?

I will say that I'm voting for ARow a lot though just because I really want to see Rowand make one. He is having a pretty good year.

Don't we want them to clinch one at home this year though? Would it be that bad if the AL lost?

Sox and AL fans won't have to go tho the trouble of scamming the voting system. The NL doesn't have enough healthy All-Star quality players to make a nine man team, let alone a 25-30 All Star roster.

Just keep Thome from participating in the over-hyped Home Run Derby(there's gotta be a sore something on him by then), so he doesn't suffer the same fate as other past HRD participants. Abreu, Scammy, come to mind, but there have been others.

No, I could care a less where they clinch it. And there are way too many variables to predict where it will happen. I can almost guarantee that if they do make it back, they probably will not sweep. Home Field advantage is much more important than where they clinch.

Game Notes:
--Frank Thomas, Carlos Lee, and Aaron Rowand received standing ovations from the sellout crowd at US Cellular Field
--by contrast, The Other Guy and Royce Clayton were booed loudly, as were the managers, Terry Bevington (AL) and Jerry Manuel (NL)
--several fans were ejected in the bottom of the first inning for throwing money and the board game "Operation" onto the playing field near The Other Guy
--Thomas' fourth-inning home run traveled an estimated 487 feet, landing atop the concourse in left field
--fomer Sox third-baseman Robin Ventura threw out the first pitch
--Carl Everett entertained fans by wearing a dinosaur costume during batting practice

It doesnt matter who gets voted cuz the sheer fact of Pujols being on the team puts them with an advantage over the AL

Postgame Quotes:

:hurt

On being back in Chicago:
"It was good to play in front of White Sox fans again, even if it was only for one game. It was also good to see a lot of my old teammates from the Sox back together again. I'm amazed at how little some of them have changed in the past few years. Carlos and Aaron keep getting better and better. I wish both of them well as they continue their careers."

On his fourth-inning home run:
"I was just trying to hit the ball hard. I put a good swing on it, and got enough of it to drive it out of the ballpark."

:maggs

On coming back to the South Side:
"It was fun playing with these guys again. It felt like old times hitting behind Frank in the batting order, and seeing guys like Jose and Royce out there. It's too bad that we didn't win, but I'm still getting paid, so life is good."

On his health:
"Why do people want to know about my knee injury? I've never had a knee injury."

:hitless

On his fielding error in the ninth:
"That was a mistake by the official scorer. Great players like Royce Clayton do not make errors. My fielding percentage record is proof of that."

On being booed by White Sox fans:
"To hell with them. I am the greatest shortstop of all time, and my dad is buying me ice cream later."

:jerry

"Zzzz...."
