Who Should Start in The American League, and For What Reasons?

The List of All-Star Reserves Was Announced: Picks for The American League and National League in 2022!

When Justin Verlander Makes His Triumphant Return to The American League in 2022, It Will Is the Best Story in The American League’s Pitching Staff.

We Have a Future Hall of Famer Who, Despite Missing Nearly Two Full Seasons After Undergoing Tommy John Surgery at The Age of 39, Is Every Bit as Impressive as He Was when He Won the Cy Young Award in 2019. Almost There; the Strikeouts Have Dropped a Bit.

In the Same Way that Ohtani Had to Start Last Year’s All-Star Game, Verlander Should Start in 2022’s All-Star Game as The Beginning Pitcher, Rather than In a Random Inning when The Crowd Is Already Waiting for Dodger Dogs.

Mc Clanahan Has Started the All-Star Game Practically Every Year until This One, Despite His Lackluster Performance. He Is a Fantastic Pitcher Who Deserves to Be the Starter. if He’s the Real Deal, He’ll Start Another All-Star Game in The Future.

The List of All-Star Reserves Was Announced: Picks for The American League and National League in 2022!

To Be Sure, All Sides of The Debate About the All-Star Game Are Correct. the First Is that The All-Star Game Exists to Showcase the Best Players in The World. Secondly, the Game Should Honor Players Who Have Performed Admirably Thus Far in The Season.

These Two Worlds Have Come Together in Alcantara. He’s the Kind of Pitcher that Casual Baseball Fans Don’t Realize They Want to See, but He’s Been the Greatest in The National League This Season by Far.

Kershaw or Gonsolin Would Be a Nice Addition to Dodger Stadium, but The All-Star Game Is for The Entire World, Not Just the Host City. Wait until Later in The Game to Give Them Their Thunderous Ovation.

You Should Start the Pitcher Who Has Thrown more innings and has a better record than the next closest starter, the one with the lowest ERA, the one with the fastest fastball in the league, and the one with the fastest changeup. Recognize and reward good work. Respect the effort that’s been done. Brian Snitker, do the right thing. Alcantara is the first step.

National League.

I write picture books, for middle grade, and young adults, some of which have won prizes, been filmed, or become bestsellers. I've ghostwritten for Pixar and developed teen work for Alloy Entertainment. I think heartfelt writing is the finest. It doesn't have to be personal, but it must be visceral. You want them riveted from the first word, page, or sentence, no matter how painful or unpleasant, and that's my expertise.
