(KCBS) – Major League Baseball takes its annual mid-summer break for the All-Star game Tuesday night in Kansas City. And, well ahead of the first pitch, there was plenty of chatter about who would take the mound.

According to reports early Monday morning, San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain was to be named starter for the National League.

“This is what All-Star games are always about. Who gets chosen and then who gets left out and then who starts and all those things, and that’s the great thing about it. If there is a thing about them, it gives you fodder for arguments and so it’s going to be,” John Madden told the KCBS morning crew. “Being from here, I’m glad that Matt Cain is the starter and that’s the way I would go, too.”

Justin Verlander was slated as starting pitcher for the American League.
