2012 MLB All-Star GameThread - N.L. @ A.L. - Kauffman Stadium

Swing, batta batta.
Swing, batta batta.

Here is the official Bluebird Banter All-Star GameThread! Unfortunately Tom cannot be with us today because there is some sort of Stampede or something going on in his city.

So, what are your predictions for the All-Star Game? Which team are you rooting for, and why? Who do you think will be the game MVP? Are you going to stay after Jose Bautista gets substituted?

TV Viewers: American fans can find the All-Star Game broadcast on Fox. Canadian fans actually have the choice of two feeds: the MLB international feed will be on the regular Sportsnet channel and the American Fox feed will be available on Sportsnet ONE. Pre-game ceremonies begin at 8:00 pm Eastern.
