All star game debate

Quizzo master and local celebrity/sex symbol Johnny Goodtimes has an idea on how to settle baseball all-star games that go into extra innings. I have to admit that I am intrigued but not particularly wild about ending these games with a home-run derby. I watched the last 8 innings of the game and was absolutely riveted by the end.

Unfortunately for JGT, the ratings from the game are in and judging from the numbers, the prospect for changing the format does not look good as the percent share increased during the extra-innings from 16% for innings 1 to 9 to 18% for innings 10 to 15.
