Two deserving aces will toe the rubber for the 87th MLB midsummer classic.

As the major league baseball All-Star game gets ready to be played tomorrow night, two absolutely deserving aces were given the nod to start for their respective leagues.

Terry Collins tapped 30-year-old right-hander Johnny Cueto (13-1, 2.47 ERA) for the NL, who has been sensational in his first year in San Francisco.

On the other hand, Ned Yost announced that 27-year-old southpaw Chris Sale (14-3, 3.38 ERA) will take the ball for the AL. Anchoring the Chicago White Sox rotation, Sale has dazzled en route to his 14 wins and three complete games.

Notable National League candidates Jake Arrieta, Madison Bumgarner, Noah Syndergaard, and Clayton Kershaw were ruled out due to either short rest or injury concern (Kershaw & Syndergaard).

Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright made a strong case in the American League only to get run over by the glamorous pick.

With that said, no one will question putting two electric arms out there to go up against the best lineups the game of baseball has to offer.
