MLB All-Star Game Prediction 2021

This year’s “Midsummer Classic” is at Coors Field in Colorado, which is interesting because it’ll be at the most hitter-friendly environment in baseball. We could see a high-scoring affair in this contest. It’s possible that playing at Coors will favor the NL because their hitters and pitchers have had more exposure to the altitude in Colorado than their AL counterparts.

This is especially true for players in the NL West, like Fernando Tatis Jr. or former Rockies, like Nolan Arenado. The NL also has Rockies starter German Marquez, who is obviously familiar with Coors. Usually the venue would not have much of an influence on the game, but there’s a decent chance that it will in this case due to the altitude.

2021 AL All-Stars: Keys to Victory

  • Pitch around Fernando Tatis Jr.
  • Bring in Carlos Rodon early to capture him at top form.
  • Start Shane Bieber, especially after Gerrit Cole threw 129 pitches Saturday.

2021 NL All-Stars: Keys to Victory

  • Pitch around Shohei Ohtani.
  • Start German Marquez due to familiarity at Coors Field.
  • Bring in Jacob deGrom early to help save the rest of the bullpen.

How Coors Field Will Affect The 2021 MLB All-Star Game

  • Higher probability of a slugfest in arguably the league’s best hitter’s park.
  • Coors Field helps with batting average as more hits fall.
  • Contact hitters like Michael Brantley get the biggest boost in power potential.

The National League are slight favorites over the American League in this one. I give the NL the edge here due to their superior roster with stud hitters like Fernando Tatis Jr. and pitchers like Jacob deGrom, who is in a tier of his own these days.

On the other hand, the AL has a few surprise breakouts on the roster like Texas Rangers OF Adolis Garcia and Baltimore Orioles OF Cedric Mullins.

Simply put, the NL has the superior roster on paper. I’ll also give the NL an advantage with their familiarity to Coors Field, especially with players like Marquez and Arenado.
