MLB's All-Star game to no longer decide WS home-field advantage

The league instituted the home-field advantage rule following the 2002 All-Star Game, which embarrassingly ended in a 7-7 tie and drew complaints that the contest wasn't competitive enough. With the new pact now in place, it appears that the league will no longer offer home-field advantage in the World Series based on the victor of the All-Star Game.

Manchester United vs West Ham
West Ham's Slaven Bilic says Man United's inconsistency doesn't mean they are out of the Premier League title race. And, after their most disappointing defeat of the season, losing 3-2 at Spurs having led 2-1 in the 89th minute.

Somewhat amazingly and coincidentally, home field advantage in the Giants' last three World Series appearances has gone to the team with the best record.

The change is part of the new collective bargaining agreement reached Wednesday night. San Francisco had a better record than the Anaheim Angels in 2002, but because the National League had had home field advantage the previous year, had to play four of the seven games in Southern California. Whatever league won the Midsummer Classic secured home field for the club representing it in the World Series that October. Players will play for a pool of money. Why give one World Series team home-field advantage for something it didn't do?

Trio out of Bayern's Rostov trip
Rostov then restored their lead in the 66th minute when Noboa curled home a sublime free-kick to the far post, 3-2. The defeat in the round of last resort from Borussia Dortmund 1: 0, reflected in the standings of the Bavarians.

AL teams won the World Series in eight of those 14 years. A report by the Associated Press broke the news early Thursday morning (Dec. 1) that changes to the CBA would affect how the All-Star Game and World Series would work for the next five years.
