    Also, some guy down in Houston is having a career year at 1B. Why cant the NL have 2 first basemen this year!?!

    Although you do have to say, the NL infield is looking insanely good with Berkman/Utley/Chipper.
    I would be pretty suprised if Albert isn't the starting DH. he is 3rd in BA, 2nd in OB%, 6th in SLG%, 3rd in OPS+, 7th in HR, and 1st in BB. What non- projected starter is producing like that? Well, come to think of it, Chipper would be the best DH choice if David Wright robs him of a spot.

    Since the All-Star Game has more to do with general baseball, not just Yankee Stadium where it will be held, I think that this thread is just fine under CE.
    Yeah Mattingly it's all good, we've moved over to this thread. That quote was from a while ago when dbacks guy posted bad information about ticket sales and I called him out on it. We've made up on it :atthepc

    Yeah, this might be a swing year for the National League. The NL may get home field advantage in the World Series.

    Why can't the NL have a DH. Just a write-in to see who's more popular. Like Fielder DHing while Pujols plays 1st.

    all of whom I voted for. On the ballot, you can't vote for pitchers. I don't know why
