Tonight is the 84th midsummer classic where the world’s best baseball players are put on national display. Matt Harvey will get the nod for the National League and pitch the first two innings of the game. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him pump a few 100 mph fastballs in the first inning.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

LF Mike Trout Angels

2B Robinson Cano Yankees

3B Miguel Cabrera Tigers

1B Chris Davis Orioles

RF Jose Bautista Blue Jays

DH David Ortiz Red Sox

CF Adam Jones Orioles

C Joe Mauer Twins

SS J.J. Hardy Orioles

P Max Scherzer, Tigers

 

David Wright will bat cleanup for the National League and play about five innings until Pedro Alvarez will replace him. Mariano Rivera will get into the game at some point even if the American League isn’t winning. Even if your a diehard Met fan, as I am, you should still give the greatest closer of all time one final applause. untitled

NATIONAL LEAGUE

2B Brandon Phillips Reds

RF Carlos Beltran Cardinals

1B Joey Votto Reds

3B David Wright Mets

LF Carlos Gonzalez Rockies

C Yadier Molina Cardinals

SS Troy Tulowitzki Rockies

DH Michael Cuddyer Rockies

CF Bryce Harper Nationals

P Matt Harvey, Mets

It should be interesting to see the applause for David Wright as well as former Met Carlos Beltran when they announce the starting lineups. My money would be on the National League with all that great pitching.
