If you can't beat 'em, go get them

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Roy Halladay has never been on the losing team in the All-Star Game.

Neither has Tim Hudson.

Five games, no losses. Not bad, especially since Halladay and Hudson are both National League All-Stars, and the NL hasn't won an All-Star Game since 1996.

The catch, of course, is that Halladay and Hudson were All-Star winners as American Leaguers. American Leaguers, now trying to break the NL's losing streak.

"Maybe that's what we need," Hudson said with a smile.

Hudson's lone All-Star appearance before this was in 2000, when he was still with the A's. He worked a scoreless eighth inning in the AL's 6-3 win. Halladay was the AL starter last year, his fourth All-Star Game.

For all the focus on the NL's young pitchers, perhaps it's Halladay and Hudson who will make the difference.

"This has definitely been the year of the pitcher," Hudson said. "There are some great young arms in the NL -- and some great old arms."

Hudson, who turns 35 on Thursday, has been in the National League since 2005, when the A's traded him to the Braves. Halladay, of course, is in his first year in the NL.

"There was a lot of pride [in the AL] in how many games we had won in a row," Halladay said. "And over here, there would be a lot of pride in being the team that ends the streak."

i hope ur being saracastic or just saying this to see what responses you can get. I guess if winning a batting title at age 25 and a potential 30-30 guy sucks, the majority of the league sucks....nice one guy
