All-Star lineups and starting pitchers...

Postby Rin04 » Mon Jul 11, 2005 4:10 pm

AL:
Starting pitcher: Buehrle
1. Damon
2. A-Rod
3. Ortiz
4. Manny
5. Tejada
6. Vlad
7. Tex
8. Varitek
9. Roberts

NL:
Pitcher: Carpenter
1. Abreu
2. Beltran
3. Pujols
4. Lee
5. Edmonds
6. A. Ramirez
7. Piazza
8. Kent
9. Eckstein

(Pujols is the DH)

I think Clemens should be starting over Carpenter.

See who's catching for the NL? Doubt we need a repeat of last year's overblown supposed tipping pitches controversy.

Should be Ramon anyways.

The NL should be allowed to use an AL Shortstop and catcher this year.

My God, if the American League doesn't win by 10+ runs, this game should be considered a draw.

You could make an argument the bottom 5 of the AL is better than the top half of the AL, that's how balanced the lineup is. I fully expect the AL to win this game. I also think Clemens should be starting over Carpenter.

La Russa showing too much favoritism here, most notably with Carpenter over Clemens. Thats just awful IMO.

I am surprised to see Roberts, a top 2 AL player this year being stuck 9th. IMO he should hit 1st, but its past history perhaps.


And yeah, the AL should destroy the NL.

Jeter, Hafner and Matsui should play and some even start for the NL to make things more fair :-b

Did anyone else hera the repost that Tony LaRussa said he was going to manage this thing to win it? I mean go all out and keep all the starters in. There is some speculation that this is why he chose Carpenter.

Apparently since he has lost a few WS without homefield advantage and the Cards are the odds on favorite in the NL, he is really taking to heart the "this time it counts" slogan.

I would do the same if I were him.......He knows his team definitely can get to the WS and he wants every advantage he can get.
