It's good to see Ken Gurnick in mid-season form. From his latest mailbag:
How can the Dodgers bring an All-Star Game back to L.A.? -- Rodolfo F., Los Angeles
All-Star Games usually go to cities with new parks. The next two games are already awarded to Yankee Stadium and Busch Stadium. I would expect Arizona, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, San Diego, Colorado and Minnesota to get one before Dodger Stadium, as well as possibly the two new stadiums being built in New York. So, maybe around 2017, give or take. Some of us might even live to see it happen.
