The American League is headlined by the likes of Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, Francisco Lindor and Aaron Judge. The general consensus is that the American League has the better stars, as the top 10 players in all of baseball, according to the WAR statistic (wins above replacement), are all from the AL. This will help them continue their recent dominance; the American League has won five straight and 17 of the last 21 (with one tie).
Although a starter hasn’t been announced just yet, the National League will try to quell those big AL bats with Max Scherzer. With the game being played in Washington, the Nats’ ace will likely get the nod in his home stadium. He is second in the majors in wins (12-5) and has a sparkling 2.41 ERA and 0.90 WHIP.
