The Midsummer Classic is upon us, with the opening pitch tonight at 7 PM.
This year's game is causing a lot of controversy as a disproportionate number of players will not be attending the All-Star game despite being voted in by the fans. 16 players who were selected will not be there, and 84 total players have been deemed an All-Star at some point this year.
The fans are ultimately the reason for this game. It's a spectacle of the most popular and (hopefully) best players in all of baseball.
I'm a baseball fan, so I'll give you five guys I wish were playing in the MLB All-Star Game tonight, in no particular order.
