2016 MLB All Star Game Preview Show

Tonight marks the days many fans and players have all been waiting for, the 2016 MLB All-Star Game. The game will be played tonight inside Petco Park in front of a sold out crowd with not only bragging rights on the line but home field advantage in the World Series on the line as well. You don’t think the Chicago Cubs, the Texas Rangers, the San Francisco Giants or whomever may make the World Series this season doesn’t want that seventh and decisive game in front of their own home crowd full of raucous fans? You know they do which is what makes this game important (and which is why a fan vote shouldn’t elect the starters but I see both sides of the coin and that is another discussion for another day). So tonight the American League, managed by Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost, will send Chris Sale to the mound to square off with the National League’s starter and New York Mets manager Terry Collin’s pick Johnny Cueto.

Sale has posted a 14-3 record with a 3.38 ERA and 123 K’s in 2016 in 18 starts.

Cueto has posted a 13-1 record with a 2.47 ERA and 115 K’s in 2016 in 18 starts.

The game will be played at 8:00 pm ET inside Petco Park and can be seen on FOX. You know they say 8:00 pm on FOX but after all the commercials, the introductions, this and that it will be closer to 8:40 before the game kicks off but hopefully it’s worth the wait. Congratulations to the three New York Yankees who were elected to the game; Carlos Beltran, Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances.

Go American League and especially go those three Yankees!
