MLB All-Star Game Tonight

The starting pitchers for the All-Star Game will be New York Mets ace Matt

pitcher to start an All-Star Game in his home park since Roger Clemens for
Houston in 2004. The young Mets right-hander is 7-2 with a 2.35 ERA and an NL-
best 147 strikeouts in 19 starts this season. He will be the first Mets
All-Star starting pitcher since Dwight Gooden in 1988. Scherzer is 13-1 this
season, suffering his first loss of the campaign on Saturday against Texas,
and is second in the AL with 152 strikeouts with an ERA of 3.19 in 19 starts.

While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
