The first half of the season is over, and the 2016 All-Star Game is rapidly approaching. But how did the fans do in selecting this year's Midsummer Classic rosters? On this week's edition of The Strike Zone podcast, Ted Keith and Stephen Cannella welcome baseball expert Jay Jaffe to the show to break down the American and National League squads, then discuss the week's biggest baseball news: the potential season-ending injury to Matt Harvey.

First up, Jay, Ted and Steve go over the AL and NL All-Star teams, as the three make their picks for the biggest surprises and snubs on each side, and what they would do to improve or change the All-Star Game if they could. After a quick commercial break, Jay, Ted and Steve turn their attention to the news concerning Harvey and the shoulder injury that could bring a premature end to his 2016, and what the Mets can do without one of their erstwhile aces.
