Dom, Cliff, and 66 Scrubs at Tonight’s All Star Game in New York

Jul 16, 2013, 5:56 PM EDT


After last night’s excellent appetite-whetting Home Run Derby, which resulted in a record-high number of Yoenis Cespedes-related discussions at office watercoolers nationwide, Citi Field tonight brings us the true Mid-Summer Classic. The stars are out, the stands are filling up, and social media is breathless with anticipation for a long night of complaining about Joe Buck and Tim McCarver. Truly, a tradition unlike any other.

Two of the 68 players taking the field tonight to represent the game’s best and brightest–including such greats of the sport as Jeff Locke, Everth Cabrera and Steve Delabar–will also be repping for Philly: Cliff Lee and Domonic Brown. Neither are starting, and with the absolutely insane number of players per All-Star team now, neither is likely to get more than token action, but hopefully both will do their home team proud in their limited appearances. Here’s a crappy picture I took of their adjacent lockers!


Supposedly a 7:30 start time from Citi Field, though that probably means first pitch will be closer to 8:00. Go Fightins, go NL, and David Wright, if you wanna embarrass yourself one or two more times without doing too much damage to the team, don’t let us stop you.

    Please tell me how Tim McCarver got the job, just who did he blknow? He’s almost as annoying as Matthews. Well at least it’s only one or two nights a year… Oh no, what’s that , he does the post season? Well it put up with it when the Phillies get there!

      The worst part? He’s better than his partner

      He also called Brandon’s DP this year the best he’s ever seen. Old people are weird

    Deleted some spammy comments if things don’t look right around here.

    I definitely make more exclamations during a game in reaction to McCarver’s commentating than plays in the game.
