This year’s game features a “new look” you could say, with young, rising stars like Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Jose Altuve and Starlin Castro. But as there always is, all-star staples remain such as Derek Jeter, David Ortiz, Prince Fielder and Chipper Jones. It’s always hard to pick these games, the pitching is great and as they say, good pitching beats good hitting. Usually it comes down to one player making one big play. Either a crazy catch, like Torii Hunter made on Barry Bonds in 2002, or a big home run like the one Garret Anderson hit in 2003. This year I see that exact thing happening – a big home run. I expect Mark Trumbo to hit a big late-inning homer to secure a 4-3 victory for the American league, their first win in three years at a great ballpark in Kansas City.
