Open Thread: 2014 All-Star Game

It's hokey, but it's fun. It's the All-Star Game!

Woo it's the All-Star Game, guys! If you look below, you'll see the #1 reason I'm tuning in. Down there at second base is Chase Utley, the Phillies' lone representative on the All-Star team. Hi, Chase!

Andrew McCutchen - CF Derek Jeter - SS
Yasiel Puig - RF Mike Trout - LF
Troy Tulowitzki - SS Robinson Cano - 2B
Paul Goldschmidt - 1B Miguel Cabrera - 1B
Giancarlo Stanton - DH Jose Bautista - RF
Aramis Ramirez - 3B Nelson Cruz - DH
Chase Utley - 2B Adam Jones - CF
Jonathan Lucroy - C Josh Donaldson - 3B
Carlos Gomez - LF Salvador Perez - C

No matter what, we get to see some of the best players in the game tonight. Yeah, the All-Star Game takes itself too seriously. But so does everything else in baseball. If you remember that this is just a game, I think it can be fun. And if it's not, it's certainly easy to mock.

Discuss it all in the comments below.
