The 2013 MLB All-Star Game at Citi Field airs tonight on FOX at 7:30 PM EDT (4:30 PM PDT). Last night, many dozens of people watched with rapt attention as the Oakland Athletics' Yoenis Cespedes won the Home Run Derby. Now that the exhibitions are over, it's time for The Game That Counts™.

I'm not the All-Star Game's biggest fan, but this one's at Citi Field, Matt Harvey is on the mound, David Wright is at third, and Carlos Beltran is in right. Even I'll confess to being a little excited about it.
