Major League Baseball: 2018 All-Stars
How do you defeat a team that has a starting outfield of Mike Trout (Los Angeles Angels), Mookie Betts (Boston Red Sox) and Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), supplemented by J.D. Martinez (Boston) as a designated hitter? That is what the National League will try to figure out when the All-Star game is played July 17 in Washington.
The rosters for both leagues were announced Sunday, and the American League has an impressive starting lineup that also includes catcher Wilson Ramos (Tampa Bay Rays), first baseman Jose Abreu (Chicago White Sox), second baseman Jose Altuve (Houston Astros), third baseman Jose Ramirez (Cleveland Indians) and shortstop Manny Mach-ado (Baltimore Orioles).
Unless, of course, the Los Angeles Dodgers manage to trade for Machado in the days before the game.
