The All Star Game is scheduled to be underway tonight at 8pm ET. Despite the thunderstorms earlier in the day, the game appears to be moving forward as scheduled.
JA Happ will be the Blue Jays sole All Star Rep, and he is representing the Blue Jays extremely well. Behold:
I hope we get to see Happ pitch tonight. Dan Shulman has this to say on the likelihood of that happening:
AJ Hinch's plan for JA Happ - hold him back for extra innings because he is rested and could go multiple innings. Hinch is sensitive to the fact this is Happ's 1st ASG and if it is obvious the game won't go x-innings, he will try to get him in earlier. #AllStarGame @BlueJays— Dan Shulman (@DShulman_ESPN) July 17, 2018
Here are the starting lineups for tonight. It’s nice to have the players in our division we have grown to loathe be on our side for one game.
Feel free to use this post as an open thread. Go American League!
