Not since 1963 has the American League held a better record than the National League in the Mid-Summer Classic.  But thanks to a torrid 16-3-1 stretch in the last 20 games, the AL has a chance to even the series.  It certainly won’t be easy, the National League is a 3/2 favorite to win.

For Phillies fans, the question is:  will we see Pat Neshak tonight?  I think the bigger question might be, when will Citizens Bank Park play host to an All-Star game?  The Phillies last hosted the game at the Vet in 1996.  Yet CBP is one of just 3 ballparks to have not hosted the MLB All-Star game – along with Tropicana Field and Yankee Stadium (4 if you include Nationals Park which is scheduled to host next season).
