Citi Field is not quite like AT&T Park, where home runs have become a dying breed, but given the amount of electric arms for both leagues in the All-Star Game, it could be a quiet night offensively.
The American League is certainly stacked with power hitters, but National League manager Bruce Bochy has a collection of pitchers who can bring the heat.
Ditto for AL manager Jim Leyland, who can send out a roster of pitchers beyond Max Scherzer who are capable of bringing a heavy, unhittable ball.
The NBA All-Star Game is famous for a lack of defense and high-scoring affairs. In the MLB All-Star Game, every pitcher is looking to blow away hitters, much like Pedro Martinez and Carl Hubbell did before them.
If I had to pick one player to crack the pitching dominance by hitting a big fly, I'd take Chris Davis.
Davis was knocked out of the Home Run Derby in the first round on Monday night, tearing a callous in the process. However, he won't let that stop him on Tuesday night. By homering in his last four games, Davis tied Reggie Jackson for the most home runs hit by an AL player before the All-Star break.
