Looking at the score, American League right now,

The National League, 180 points.
Let's hear it for both teams, everybody.
Okay, the head-to-head round is up next.
But first, we're going to take a little break in the action
and just chill out a little bit.
And the way we do that, gang, is I've got a question
in my hand.
I will ask the question.
Each of you will get to answer, okay?
We'll start with you, Anagh.
Who's your favorite baseball player, and why?
>> Derek Jeter, because he's a classic leader
and a class act at playing baseball.
>> Now, I was reading your bio, and you say
your command of baseball facts is encyclopedic.
>> Yeah.
>> All right, good for you.
Gabriel, same question for you.
>> Jose Iglesias, because he has the best hands
in MLB, and, like, he's the guy that I want
to be like when I grow up.
>> And you're a ballplayer, right?
>> Yeah.
>> Who are you playing for right now?
>> I play for New Mission High School
and Boston Nationals.
>> And how are you doing?
How's the team doing?
>> Doing good.
>> Okay, good.
>> Brian, same question.
>> Dustin Pedroia's my favorite baseball player.
Just the way he plays the game, very aggressive at the plate
and everything, and a good leader.
So I like all those qualities.
>> Okay.
And you're a bit of a broadcaster yourself now?
>> Yeah, I have a local cable show
on the Holbrook channel, which is the town I live in.
We talk all sports, so it's pretty fun.
>> Okay, same question for you, Paige.
>> Jon Lester, because he remained loyal to the team.
When another team offered him more money he said
they'd have to rip the shirt off his back
before he left the Red Sox.
>> Yeah, I like that!
Now, Paige, you played baseball, and then at one point
you switched to softball.
>> Yeah.
>> And you're currently playing now?
>> Yep.
>> For whom?
>> The Raiders out of Concord, and Boston Latin.
>> And what position do you play?
>> Shortstop.
>> All right, good for you.
All right, now we move over to the National League.
And Chris, same question.
>> I'm going to go with an old one--
Nomar Garciaparra.
>> Whoa.
>> It's my saddest...
>> Nomaah!
>> ...day of my life... that's right.
Saddest day of my life was when he got traded.
I was at a birthday party, did not stop crying.
Had to go home.
>> Now, you're a broadcaster yourself too, right?
>> That's right.
I have... I broadcast almost every sport
in Swampscott.
They call me the Voice of the Big Blue.
My teacher is actually here, Mr. Reed.
>> There you go.
>> So I love what I do.
>> Justin, same question.
I would have to say Mike Trout or Robinson Cano.
>> And why is that?
>> They're both great players, they both work hard,
they... like, Mike Trout came into the league,
he came in working hard, one of the best centerfielders,
Robinson Cano, one of the best second basement.
>> And you're a ballplayer.
>> Yes.
>> What position?
>> Second base, right field.
>> Who are you playing for?
>> Boston Latin Academy, or the Boston Nationals.
>> Good for you.
We've got some ballplayers here, gang.
Aaron, how about you?
Same question.
>> I've kind of got to say, I've got two favorite players.
I've got Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout.
But, I mean, not just because they're amazing players,
and they're, you know, having amazing seasons
and careers, but they helped me win my fantasy baseball league
this past year.
And so you can't argue with that.
>> All right, Joe, now it's down to you.
>> Pulling out a classic-- Ken Griffey, Jr.
>> Ooh.
>> You know, just like the way he played the game,
always giving his all, didn't always swing for the fences,
but he knew when he had to hit a home run--
he would do it.
>> And do you play ball now?
>> I do.
>> You playing for Waltham?
>> Yep.
>> Position?
>> Pitcher, outfield, and first base.
>> Kind of doing it all, huh?
>> Lefty.
>> All right, good for you.
Okay, it's time to go head to head.
And for today's show we're going to bring out
our esteemed managers onto the field
and into the gameplay.
Representing the American League, Don Orillo!
And for the National League, it's the incomparable
Gordon Edes, ESPN Boston!
All right, I am so excited.

I've got Don Orsillo right here, Gordon Edes right here.
Let's relax just for a couple of seconds,
all right?
First of all, Don, what are you most
looking forward to for the new Red Sox season?
>> I'm looking forward to seeing if they can do
what they did last year.
I mean, last year was such an incredible, improbable
A lot of the same guys are coming back.
It'll be interesting to see early if this team can
continue the winning that brought them
a championship last year.
>> Gordon, any surprises in the off season
that has you keyed up?
>> No, I think the thing that I'm most
looking forward to, Billy, is the emergence
of the two kids-- Jackie Bradley, Jr.
looking to start in center field for the Red Sox,
and Xander Bogaerts, who showed the poise of a ten-year
veteran during the postseason last year.
That should be an interesting development
to watch.
>> Gordon brought his game face here today.
I thought for sure you were just going to say,
"I'm just looking forward to crushing Don Orsillo
right now in the head-to-head round."
I hope you don't mind, Gordon.
Don and I talked.
We're going to do this whole round in Italian.
All right, here we go.
>> But Billy, before we start...
>> Okay.
>> ...I wonder if you should have Don wipe his hands off.
You know, I would hate for it to slide off the buzzer
because he's sweating so much.
>> Okay, let's go head to head.
The head-to-head round is 90 seconds.
And I need to explain, you get ten points
