    Hey-

    Was curious to hear some takes on roster construction for the MLB All Star Showdown contest. Although I am doing it to make the game more fun, I am intrigued by the best way to go about it. It is definitely a little hard to establish a strategy due to the unpredictability of rest, pitchers dual vs. offensive game, picking spots, and the fact that all pitchers are being scored as relief (higher points for strikeouts). I looked at some box scores from the previous years and it is looking like pitchers are the way to go. I also considered that 1 inning pitched with 1-3 strikeouts is 7-13 points, which equates to a batter hitting a home run pretty much (and the possibility of bonus points for win/save) What I can’t decide however, is what starting pitchers and relief pitchers will actually get into the game after looking at mixed results in previous box scores.

    My lineup currently is
    AL: Chris Sale/Blake Snell/Edwin Diaz (SP/SP/RP)
    NL: Jacob Degrom/Aaron Nola/Josh Hader (SP/SP/RP)

    What are your thoughts on playing batters as opposed to pitchers, and on what pitchers to select based on probability of play? (Obviously, any news reports tomorrow will be relevant)
