But at the same time, is it really harmful? I don't know when the MidSummer Classic became only about that season or the season before. It's always been a celebration of great players and great fans, and it actually seems like an excellent time to honor someone like Jeter.

As pointed out in the post and comments, fading legends have long been awarded spots they didn't deserve for their recent performance.
