How Amazing Is It...

...That, on the same day the Pirates cemented their claim to be the worst team in baseball by being swept in embarrassing fashion by the Royals, Jim Tracy is named a coach in the All-Star Game? Last night, that piece of news and the score of the Bucs/Royals game followed each other closely on ESPN's ticker. I know the Tracy announcement is just PR, but still, there just aren't words to describe things like this. It probably doesn't matter much, but if I were a member of a contending team and home-field advantage in the World Series didn't matter to me, I'd be somewhat upset about this.
