MLB All Star Picks

The All Star game is set for a week from Tuesday in Phoenix. As you will remember the outcome of the Midsummer Classic will decide who gets home field advantage for the World Series.

The past few years the All Star game has been dominated by pitching. I've got to believe that will be the case again this year. My guess is the Tigers Justin Verlander and the Phils Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee will be the starters for the game. Don't look for a lot of scoring.

Here are my selections for the July 12th game.

NL: Brian McCann, Braves

AL: Adrian Gonzalez, Red Sox
NL: Prince Fielder, Brewers
