neither deserve to...there just isn't any other good 3B



LOLWUT?! Pablo Sandoval has the 4th highest WAR in the entire MLB and best in the NL at 3B, and he MISSED a month of baseball.



hes the most deserving...but thats largely in part to there not being any other quality 3B in the NL.

Aramis Ramirez, David Wright and Ryan Zimmerman aren't quality 3B's?

You make no sense, he clearly DESERVES to be there considering his stats while missing over 40 games are closing in on those that have played way more than him. The only people in the AL that have a higher WAR than him have played 30 games more than him at the very least and Beltre has 40+ more games than him.

David Wright is hurt and has hit .226 this year.

Aramis Ramirez turned down his selection.

Zimmerman has spent most of the season on the DL. He's hit .254 with 4 HR and 15 RBI in one month of baseball.

Doesn't make them not quality 3B. There are plenty of good 3B in the NL, but like James said, not a ton of them have put together great years, and that's what I was getting at.
I dont know if the NL can match up as well this year with the AL. Last year the NLs pen was stacked. Ubaldo in his peak, Josh Johnson, Halliday, Wainwright.. so stacked, Lincecum didnt even get in the game.

Lots of AL pitchers not pitching though because they did Sunday (I think Verlander and Sabathia are two of them) so it's going to be an interesting game to say the least.
im an NL homer but The AL cant hang with our stuff(pitching)
Bochy isnt gonna know what to do with guys that can hit.


Offense?! what the hell is offense?!

I think the AL pretty much has the better team every year as they have the majority of the stars. However, it isnt is one sided as it used to be and I will still root hard for the NL.
