Hard to believe it’s already that time of the year, but the AL and NL All-Star teams will be announced this evening (6:30pm ET on FOX). Robinson Cano and Mariano Rivera are shoo-ins for the Midsummer Classic, the Yankees’ only other serious candidates are Brett Gardner, David Robertson, and Hiroki Kuroda. My official guess (and it’s just a guess) is that none of those three get in but Gardner is one of the five guys on the Final Vote ballot. We’ll find out soon enough.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the night. After the All-Star Selection Show, those of you in the Tri-State area will get the Mets and Brewers (Marcum vs. Gallardo) as the FOX Saturday night game. Those of you who live elsewhere will see one of four other games. MLB Network will air a game later tonight as well. Talk about any of that stuff and more right here.
