Open Thread: MLB All Star Game

New, comments

Kenny Rogers of the American League starts out against Brad Penny of the National League in what just might be one of the least interesting starting pitching matchups in recent memory.

Look for Barry Zito to get more than the one batter matchups he's faced in the past (two times an All Star, one batter faced).

My money is on the AL considering recent results from the game. The AL is stacked with talent and is DEEEEEEEP.

Here are the starting lineups:

AL

Suzuki
Jeter
Ortiz
Rodriguez, A
Guerrero
Rodriguez, I
Wells
Loretta
Rogers

NL

Soriano
Beltran
Pujols
Bay
Renteria
Wright
Utley
Lo Duca
Penny

I'll go with a final score of 9-7 for the AL, MVP being Vernon Wells.

Here's hoping for the AL.
