Daily Sports Blurb, Anecdote or Quote 15 July 2008

Tonight Major League Baseball will play its 79th All Star game pitting players from the American League against those from the National League. Between the travesty of in season inter-league play and more frequent player movement between leagues, the All Star game has sadly lost some of the fierceness of the rivalry. However, I still enjoy watching the game each year. The American League has won the last 10 contests (except the tie in 2002) which is a stark contrast to my youth when he National League won nearly every year. The Indians' Cliff Lee is the AL starting pitcher and Ben Sheets of the Brewers will pitch for the NL. Since a winning streak has to end some time and the NL appear to have a stronger starting line-up I'll predict a 9 - 4 NL victory.

I predict an NL victory as well with Brad Lidge nailing down the save.
