AMERICAN LEAGUE
Ichiro Suzuki, CF
Derek Jeter, SS
David Ortiz, 1B
Alex Rodriguez, 3B
Vladimir Guerrero, RF
Magglio Ordonez, LF
Ivan Rodriguez, C
Placido Polanco, 2B
Dan Haren, P

NATIONAL LEAGUE
Jose Reyes, SS
Barry Bonds, LF
Carlos Beltran, CF
Ken Griffey, Jr., RF
David Wright, 3B
Prince Fielder, 1B
Russell Martin, C
Chase Utley, 2B
Jake Peavy, P

I was almost right with my prediction for the American League, simply backwards with David Ortiz and Vladimir Guerrero. However, the National League lineup is all over the place, with the biggest surprise being Barry Bonds second in the order. I also can’t fathom why Tony LaRussa would bat Chase Utley ninth and Carlos Beltran third. Utley is 10th in the Majors in RBI and Beltran doesn’t even deserve to be in the game. Hopefully everything backfires and the American League continues its dominance.
