National League Preview


1. Hanley Ramirez SS
2. Chase Utley 2B
3. Lance Berkman 1B
4. Albert Pujols DH
5. Chipper Jones 3B
6. Matt Holliday OF
7. Ryan Braun OF
8. Kosuke Fukudome OF
9. Geovany Soto C

Ben Sheets SP

The National League has a lot of power all throughout their lineup with Hanley Ramirez at the top and Geovany Soto at the bottom. They have some of the great young players in the game with Ramirez, Ryan Braun, Chase Utley, and Soto. They also have great young pitchers, such as Tim Lincecum, Edinson Volquez and Aaron Cook.

A question I have about the National League will be their pitching. Many of the pitchers they have on their team pitched on Sunday so that could come back to hurt them.

My Prediction:
American League 10, National League 8

This blog is really starting to rock! And I mean rock! The entries are timely, unique, well written, sweet use of multimedia and graphics, and present a nice mixture of factual news and the author's commentary.

The way you guys are rotating the entries demonstrates a cohesive, concerted and planned team effort from all of you. And that rocks to infinity.
