Greetings and welcome to the Lookout Landing open thread for the Midsummer Classic aka the MLB All-Star Game, live from Miami (bienvenidos a Miami). Kick back, have a beer/cider/whiskey/La Croix or whatever, and take in the pageantry and silliness. Since the All-Star Game winner no longer decides home field advantage for the World Series, I hope there will be some more goofiness, fun match-ups, and less giving-a-hoot than in the previous few seasons. This is an exhibition game, after all, so let’s exhibit some antics, shall we?

Here are the starting lineups:

Let’s hear your predictions!

  1. First pitcher to get 3 strikeouts
  2. First home run
  3. Longest home run
  4. Who wins? AL or NL?
  5. Who wins MVP?
  6. Lowest .WPA %
