    AL vs NL

    Which league has the better players this year. Over the past several years I would say it has clearly been the AL. This year, I feel like it has shifted to the NL.

    i think the NL has a lot of younger talent. Most of the AL is veterans that are still talented, but have dwindling careers..

    I'm all about the AL, but I wont lie, the NL has finally caught up.

    Obviously the AL has proven itself over the last decade, but the NL has more young talent and more pitching, so I think they have a good shot at winning the all star game this year.

    The AL has a number of teams with young talent. Some have young talent AND money. Until the NL proves something, it's just the JV's looking good against other JV's. Many of the best of them will end up in the AL - take Ryan Howard for instance - assuming he is still playing at age 35 it won't be in the NL.

    NL is really starting to get closer to the AL this year.. so my choice is NL.

    I think it's about relatively even.

    It is pretty even, but the NL has some great young players, so I give them the edge.

    Only because he's inept at playing the field due to wieghing 300 pounds at that age, and the nl doesn't have the DH. Same with Dunn, Burrell, and a number of others.

    The NL would be clear favorites this year if the DH didn't exist, and not to mention that the three largest payrolls are in the AL (NY, BOS, DET).

    Nope. It actually goes like this this year:

    New York Yankees $ 209,081,577
    New York Mets $ 137,793,376
    Detroit Tigers $ 137,685,196
    Boston Red Sox $ 133,390,035
    usatoday.com

    So, they have 3 of the top 4, but not the top 3.

    The entire AL Central is awful, but it's the AL right now.

    I wouldnt say that the AL central is awful.. just not playing good. The CY young is in that division. How can you say that look at the Tigers lineup some good players there as well..
