Being named the starting pitcher of the MLB All Stars Game odds competition is a great honor and despite what any pitcher tells you it’s a big deal to hear your name announced as the MLB All Stars Game betting starter. This year there are many good candidates but the starting pitchers will hardly be a surprise to most MLB All Stars Game betting fans.
In the NL it’s somewhat difficult to single out the best pitcher of the season so far prior to the MLB All Stars Game betting. However, it would hard to deny that Edison Volquez of the Reds hasn’t been the best pitcher in the NL or the entire majors heading into the MLB All Stars Game betting break. With an 11-2 record his win loss percentage is fantastic and his ERA is a miniscule 2.36, the best in the NL and the second best of any pitcher in the MLB All Stars Game betting game. He deserves to start for the NL in the MLB All Stars Game betting but that nod will likely go to veteran Brandon Webb, whose also deserving.
In the AL the parity among the pitchers representing the junior circuit in the MLB All Stars Game betting is almost stifling. No single player has emerged as the man to be the unanimous MLB All Stars Game odds starting pitcher. But Cliff Lee would be about as close as any player in the AL of laying claim to the MLB All Stars Game betting game honor. Lee has had a terrific first half of the season, playing on a truly awful Indians squad. His record of 11-2 is about as good as they get and his 2.43 ERA ranks him second in the AL. And, again what makes his MLB All Stars Game betting selection even more impressive is that he’s winning on an awful club.
Lee is all but guaranteed the starting job and most likely when the MLB All Stars Game betting gets underway he’ll be dueling with the Arizona Diamondbacks Webb for the win.
