Line-Ups Announced For Midsummer Classic

MLB announced the line-ups for tomorrow night's All-Star Game in Kansas City (hmm, I guess their ballpark must be older than 100 this year). As you can see from the chart, David Ortiz will DH and bat seventh—ahead of only Mike Napoli and Curtis Granderson. Derek Jeter will lead-off for the AL squad. Carlos Gonzalez of Colorado will top the NL line-up as their DH, with Joey Votto hitting clean-up. The starting pitching match-ups are Justin Verlander for the American League and Matt Cain for the National League.
