3B is really weak for the NL with all the injuries. I know Berkman was voted in at OF, but if Bochy wanted a competent person in the RF, they shoulda really put Beltran there instead of Berkman. Don't get me wrong I love the Big Pumma and he is the reason we are anywhere near first place, but his defense.....well lacks a bit.
And to add to GF's brilliant post......Halladay > Weaver. And I would give the slightest of edges to the NL with the pitching.
Yeah well that makes no sense either. Beltran's knees are fine and he's been good in RF. Berkman will probably cost the NL team defensively. I don't know why Sandoval or Aramis Ramirez aren't at 3B for the NL. Rolen is terrible this year.
5-3 AL with one tie but all very close except for 3B.
I don't care about just this year. I'd rate Tulo better than Asbrubal. We all know he is a better player. What Asdrubal has done over 80 something games doesn't mean as much as what he has done over the last 3-4 years. I just don't like the construction of the lineup. Tulo should be batting higher. Holliday too. The lineup changes so much with subs that I'd rather get Tulo a potential 3 ABs. Batting 8th guarantees him 2 maybe even 1.
In a perfect world this game wouldn't mean anything and the lineups wouldn't matter as they would just be having fun.
I'd also compare them via spot in the lineup if anything. Because if you rate them by position, then defense has to count for something, and it would change things.
