    This is a complicated question.

    1. The Yankees don't really have one ace, four of their pitchers have been aces at one point. For this season I'd say Chien-Ming Wang, their star is another issue. Derek Jeter is the Captain and one of the most consistent guys in the game, but A-Rod puts up better power numbers.

    2. Boston's ace could be considered either Beckett or Schilling, this year I'd certainly say Josh Beckett. Their star, for this year is rather difficult. Most everyone is performing rather well, I'd have to say Beckett should actually be considered their star, but for a non-pitcher, its tough,. Both Manny and Papi are under performing, for their usuals anyway, but still probably one of those guys.

    3. The Dodger's ace is Brad Penny, he's been rather lights out for them. Their star is another tough one. I'd say Russell Martin, their catcher. He's been the most consistent over the season, but look out for James Loney, Loney won't be around for long enough this season to be considered their out right star, but he's rpetty good, enough to warrant the Dodgers moving Garciaparra to third base.

    4. Atlanta Braves ace is John Smoltz, not by much, but he barely gets the nod over Hudson. Their star is Chipper Jones, he has sbeen putting up amazing numbers for them this year.

    5. NY Mets. Their ace is John Maine, he's doing really well, but Oliver Perez is right on his heels. Their star could be either Jose Reyes or David Wright, both are doing really well. Their jobs are a little different, so just comparing stats isn't really fair. Their star could be either one of them, on any given day.

    NY Yankees:

    Chien-Ming Wang (low Ks, but with a declining rotation, he gets the job done in wins)

    Alex Rodriguez (obviously)

    Boston:

    Josh Beckett (on fire this year, takes it over Dice-K because of MLB experience, but look for Dice-K to be the Ichiro of pitching in future years)

    David Ortiz (consistent every year)

    LA Dodgers:

    Brad Penny (best pitcher in a poor rotation)

    Russell Martin (surprise of the year)

    Atlanta:

    John Smoltz (always good)

    Chipper Jones (only because he made a comeback)

    NY Mets:

    John Maine (would've been Pedro if he wasn't injured)

    David Wright (runner-up: Jose Reyes)
