Opinions vary regarding whether or not the MLS All-Star game is worth your time, whether it's a valuable exercise, or whether it should even exist at all. Nevertheless, the match that is billed as Major League Soccer's central showcase and spectacle is upon us, and the best and brightest (and richest, and highest-profile) in the league will taken on Arsenal FC at Avaya Stadium in San Jose.
The New England Revolution have a participant this season in defender Andrew Farrell who, if he appears tonight, will be the first Rev to take the pitch in an All-Star match since Shalrie Joseph in 2011. He was not, however, named to the starting lineup.
