When it comes to the best pure hitter and pure pitcher in the game, there are no two better baseball specimens than Albert Pujols and Roy Halladay. If you had to create the perfect baseball player, DNA would be taken from both of these guys and would be used to clone an army of unstoppable futuristic baseball machines.

There may not be any cloning involved, but we'll get to see the next best thing later tonight. It's the matchup that many players and fans wanted and now the are finally going to get it at the 80th MLB All-Star Game. After it was announced that Halladay will start the All-Star Game for the American League, he is guaranteed to square off against the best hitter in baseball, Albert Pujols who will be hitting third for the National League All-Stars.

The slight advantage goes to Doc because Pujols is 0 for 4 in career at bats against against Halladay. But how do you think that it will turn out - will Roy Halladay continue to own Albert Pujols or will Prince Albert deliver in his home ball park?
