All-Star Gameday Thread: 7/10 vs. AL


Matt Cain
LHP, 9-3, 2.62


Justin Verlander
RHP, 9-5, 2.58

The National League and American League go up against each other, with a scheduled start time of 5pm Arizona. However, from previous experience, I'm guessing it probably won't quite be start on the dot: there's more pre-event ceremony than for anything since the Yalta Conference. Still, we'll get the thread up an hour in advance. The NL has now won two in a row, after the AL went undefeated from 1997-2009, and now leads the overall record 42-38 with two ties. For the third time in four years, the NL starter comes out of the NL and is not a D-back. Mind you, we provided them all from 1999-2002, and Webb should probably have started as well.

Line-ups after the jump. Will Wade Miley get into the game? How the heck did San Francisco end up with four starters? And remember, folks: "This time, it counts." Hopefully, St. Buster will deliver, so the D-backs can enjoy home field advantage in the World Series. 'Cos that'd be sweet.
