Former Marlin Andrew Miller had quite the homecoming, closing out the game for the AL and garnering the save. Unfortunately, the current Marlins in the game didn’t do as well, but they still enjoyed putting on the show.
The game cast a light on the city, as well as the team. Even the Marlins’ barber got a close-up. The Guardian asked if Miami was the worst place for an All-Star Game. The Herald pointed the finger at Loria for that possibility but said Miami still has a passion for baseball.
Of course, the team is still for sale and celebrities are getting in on the bidding. I personally hope Jorge Mas wins for all the bilingual puns that I’ll be able to make with his name. Need I say mas? Okay, it’s really just gonna be replacing “more” with “mas” every chance I get.

It was the All-Star game for MLB stadium promos too. Atlanta’s “The Freeze” was in attendance, and actually got beat by a ringer.
