Participants for both sides:

 

American League

National League

 

My predicted winner: Corey Hart, NL.

2nd place: Miguel Cabrera, AL

Guy who hits like 0 homers in the first round and everyone groans as to why he was even invited: Hanley Ramirez, NL

Highest potential for antics: Nick Swisher, AL

Guy nobody cheers for because they have no idea who he is: Chris Young, NL

 

Starts at 6PM on ESPN. Everybody watch and cheer on somebody for whatever reason you want - just be sure to vehemently defend them!

Results past the jump.
