McFarlane SportsPicks 2012 MLB Line-Up Announced

Here is the 2012 line-up of McFarlane’s MLB SportsPicks!

McFarlane Toys is proud to announce our Major League Baseball SportsPicks lineups for 2012. Fourteen of the game’s best players are stepping up and being honored in the sport’s best collectible series. How good are the players in our 2012 lineups? These 14 players have combined to earn:

58 All-Star appearances
8 Most Valuable Player awards (could be nine if Matt Kemp is named N.L. MVP for 2011)
3 Rookie of the Year awards
10 Gold Glove awards
1 Cy Young Award (could be 2 if Justin Verlander wins the A.L. Cy Young award for 2011)
7 World Championships

Setting aside the legendary Thurman Munson, if you average the 2011 seasons for the hitters and pitchers in our MLB 2012 lineups, they’d look like this:

Hitters: .301 batting average with 31 homers, 101 RBI and 15 stolen bases
Pitchers: 16-6 with 12 saves, a 2.47 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 181 strikeouts in 179 innings pitched
