Nationals' Scherzer will start the All-Star Game for NL

Max Scherzer has been named as the National League starter for Tuesday night's All-Star Game in D.C. Jacob deGrom and his MLB-leading 1.68 ERA would have been a fine choice as well, but Scherzer gets the nod with the game being played at Nationals Park, and deGrom will come on right after him. Scherzer, 33, registered a brilliant 2.41 ERA, 0.899 WHIP, and 182/34 K/BB ratio over 134 2/3 innings in the first half for Washington. He'll be opposed by Chris Sale to get things underway on Tuesday.

Red Sox' Sale named AL starter for All-Star Game

Chris Sale will start for the American League in Tuesday night's MLB All-Star Game in Washington, D.C. Sale is the first pitcher to start three All-Star Games in a row since Robin Roberts in 1953-1955. The 29-year-old left-hander put up a sensational 2.23 ERA, 0.899 WHIP, and 188/31 K/BB ratio across 129 innings in the first half for Boston. Max Scherzer will take the mound first for the National League squad.


Following three straight National League victories, the American League has rattled off five consecutive wins. With the game no longer counting towards home field advantage in the World Series, making a prediction is nothing more than a crapshoot for bettors. There are too many variables, such as constant pitching changes, players showing off for entertainment purposes, etc, that to wager major coin on the game is the equivalent to playing Roulette in a casino. That said, the American League is loaded from top to bottom and at only -130, if you are going to wager, I like the favorite.


The Pick: American League All-Stars -130
