All-Star Rotations: AL vs. NL

What follows is a relatively simple thought experiment, hopefully opening up the door for some healthy debate. I recognize that the following scenario is never, ever going to happen, even if I think it would be kinda cool if it did.

For 2011, instead of playing a single All-Star Game, Major League Baseball is breaking out the fireworks. In order to determine home field advantage for the World Series, each league is fielding a full 25-man roster of All-Stars to go head-to-head in a best of five series. A sporting agreement has been made by the two managers such that each team will carry a five-man rotation of starting pitchers, and each starter can only be used once over the course of the series.

The AL's best versus the NL's best, straight up. No one-inning cameos, no fan voting, no reserves from every club, no Shane Victorino. Just the best, playing real, nine-inning games of baseball.

Who are the five pitchers from each league? For extra credit, which games do they pitch?
