American League manager Jim Leyland announced his batting order for Tuesday's All-Star Game during a press conference today at Citi Field.
This is what the National League will be facing. It includes a pair of batters -- the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera and the Orioles' Chris Davis -- who have both hit more than 30 home runs and collected more than 90s RBIs. That's the first and second time that's ever been done before the All-Star break.
Those playerys follow up the Angels' Mike Trout and Yankees' Robinson Cano. Trout is following up a near-MVP season with another .963 OPS year. He has 21 steals to go along with it. Cano is batting .302 and has 21 steals.
"Even I can't mess that one up," Leyland said.
Needless to say, National League starter Matt Harvey (of the Mets) has his work cut out for him.
