MLB 12: The Show Predicts A Close National League Victory

The Midsummer Classic is here and the most realistic baseball simulator out there has predicted the outcome.

Sony has simulated this year's American League vs. National League showdown and as revealed at the PlayStation Blog, the elder league snagged a narrow 3-2 victory at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. ...man, I wish the Royals were better.

The low run total shouldn't surprise anyone who has been following baseball this season; we've already seen five no-hitters and quite a few pitchers are having damn good years. Although a game-tying RBI hit from Angels rookie sensation Mike Trout ties the contest for the AL in the seventh, Giants catcher Buster Posey comes through in the clutch in the top of the eighth.

So, how close will this prediction be? Find out when the 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game begins on FOX at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10. It's a tradition, peeps! And if you have yet to check out MLB 12: The Show, be sure to read our review.

I'll predict Ryan Braun hits a walkoff double to win the game for the National League.

Nope. Game's wrong. AL is going to dominate. Won't even be close. ;p

Prince was dynamite last night in the derby. Great showing by Blue Jay Bautista, though. Making us Jays fans proud!

To be fair, the AL dominated the last two HR Derby's as well but still lost the All Star Game both years :P Makes no difference to me though as I don't watch them anymore. The wrong people are being voted in every year now. People tend to vote for their favorite players, or who had great years prior, or on hot streaks, etc., instead of voting for the ones that have put up the best stats for the year in their positions. Doesn't apply to all of them, but it does happen frequently. All Star games should be made of "All Stars" not favorites. But I guess that's just me. I prefer the old All Star games before this century came along when it wasn't as commercialized lol.

Geobaldi-

The players with the best stats generally get voted in more so than those who are favorites. I'll use 3 examples all from the angels. Trumbo, Trout, and Weaver. Weaver is having a dominant year on the mound, Trumbo is crushing the ball only in his 2nd year, and Trout is leading the team and league in numerous categories even after not playing in the first 28 games of the season, and he's a rookie.

Just because we see Jeter (who deserves to be there) doesn't mean it's all based on stardom. The dominant players go... Notice Pujols isn't playing?

I agree with Geobaldi.

(Also *cry* at AL being dominated. :p)

The wrong players do often get in due to fan votes.

Look at Butler getting in as DH! Edwin Encarnacion has been better than him in -EVERY- category! In fact, Edwin Encarnacion is Toronto's DH with the 5th most homers in the entire league, AL and NL combined, is hitting .295, has 56 RBI's, and has even stolen 9 bases.

Butler only has 16 HR's, hitting .290, has 52 RBI, has stolen 2 bases, and has more K's and fewer walks in more at bats than Encarnacion. That's ridiculous.

Various other players have gotten the snub, too.

lol yeah. I've been saying for a while Verlander is over rated. He's in an easy-peasy division, but against that much brass... yikes!

I believe Butler got into the ASG because there must be at least one representative from each MLB team.
