Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: All-Star Game (7/10)

The starting pitcher for the NL is Jake Peavy.  The AL is going with Dan Haren.

The festivities begin at 8:00 p.m.  The game will probably start around 8:20 p.m.

Ichthyomancy is slightly different in that you won't be making an attendance pick.  What you be deciding, if you choose to play, is whether the AL or NL will be victorious, the MVP of the game but take heart there will be two other players deemed point worthy other than the actual MVP.  Also, the standard AAB pick is in play.

Here is the Ichthyomancy pick table:

FishStriper League Player AAB
Bumppo NL Reyes Game: 10+ P, 2+ HR
Colombo AL Jeter One run game
Dan AL Lowell Bonds HR in 1st, blown save
Fluxuation NL Wright NL: R+H > 30
Hurricane AL Pudge Guerrero: 0 H
Jim B AL Reyes Pulanco: 1+ XBH
Jrsyeagle NL Martin Cove HR
NYULaw NL Fielder Game: back-to-back-to-back HR

Since I have no idea what the participation rate will be tonight, your name will be added along with your picks when they are made. Or maybe to more precise, when I get home from work. Once again you do not have to select Cabrera, you can if want, be it is not required. Ichthyomancy is a free for all tonight.
