Regardless you know both guys are going to be in the game. Kershaw will be in 2nd.
I think its pretty clear that Kershaw has been the best SP in baseball this year.
Part of the spoils of managing the AS game is being a bit of a homer, but IMO Kershaw outperformed Wainwright enough to get the nod, even over a homer pick.
