The National League is coming into the 2008 MLB All Stars Game betting competition hungry for a win and the stats to back it up.
As the MLB All Stars Game odds competition about to get under the way the NL has been by many accounts the better league this year and that should provide the squad plenty of confidence as it enters the MLB All Stars Game betting action. With plenty of top talent in the roster there is no reason why the NL shouldn’t escape the MLB All Stars Game betting with the World Series home field advantage.
The Chicago Cubs are well represented with seven players in total suiting up in the NL MLB All Stars Game betting uniforms. The Cubs had three starters selected including Alfonso Soriano, Kosuke Fukudome, and Geovany Soto. Soriano will not play in the MLB All Stars Game odds competition due to injury. The team also fielded one reserve infielder and three pitchers to tie an MLB All Stars Game betting record with seven players on roster. This seems likely considering that the team has the best record in the NL entering the MLB All Stars Game betting weekend.
The other stars in this star studded MLB All Stars Game betting lineup include Braves 3rd baseman Chipper Jones who is the first person since George Brett nearly 30 years ago to enter the MLB All Stars Game betting break with a shot at batting .400. He’s joined in the outfield by Marlin standout Hanley Ramirez who might be the best short stop in baseball let alone the NL MLB All Stars Game betting lineup. Lance Berkman, also having one helluva season and long shot at the Triple Crown will start at first and bring a veteran presence to the MLB All Stars Game betting dugout.
The NL pitching staff in this year’s contest is heavily favored by many of the MLB All Stars Game odds makers. Headlining the staff include 14-game winner Brandon Webb, Edison Volquez, Tim Lincecum and Ben Sheets. All of these aces would be a worthy MLB All Stars Game betting game starter and with plenty of closing power like Kerry Wood and Billy Wagner they’ll have all the back up they need to take it to the AL in the upcoming MLB All Stars Game betting competition.
