I'm calling it right now: The MVP of the 2018 MLB All-Star Game at Nationals Park is this mist machine in the center-field concourse.

Scherzer excited to pitch against the best at home in ASG (1:25)

Bryce Harper on his first half: "I look up there and see my average as well, and I look up there and go, 'Aw man, well that sucks.' But I look over a little bit to the right side of that and see 23 homers and 53 RBIs and 80 walks and runs scored and stuff like that. I don't know. Should I be hitting .300 or .280? Yeah, absolutely. But I guess I am where I'm at, and hopefully the only way I can go is up."

Bryce Harper on how to beat the shift: "You can't. If you hit a ball in the hole, then you're out. If you hit a ball up the middle, you're out. If I have a kid, I'm not going to tell him to stay through the middle anymore because if you hit a ball up the middle, you're out. I guess guys could bunt down the first-base line or third-base line if they shift you the other way. But you don't get paid to bunt. If you hit it over all of them, that's how you beat it."

Here are your AL and NL All-Star lineups!

Lifelong Yankees fan Todd Plourde won the right to name his son "Bryce" after beating his wife at mini golf (she wanted "Avery"). Six years later, the Wallingford, CT resident - who made the six-hour drive to DC to take in the All-Star festivities with his boy - isn't spooked by his favorite player's first-half slump. "Oh my god yeah," says Plourde when asked if he'd like to see Bryce Harper sign with New York this winter. "Yankee Stadium is built for him. He'll hit 60 home runs there. Just gotta find a position for him. I'd put him at first base."
