Yes there is....when a player is not really an all star. That is a perfect excuse if you ask me
Stanton strikes out 6 times for every homerun he hits and he is 12th among AL outfielders in OPS. Those aren't the stats of an all star. If he wasn't a Yankee, nobody would give a shit about him being left off the roster.
Yeah, I was going to use Benintendi, but I didn't want @navamind to get all worked up.
Stanton's a fag.
Right on..its the MLB equivalent to a participation trophy
WE ALL GET ORANGE SLICES MA!!!!
They have been underwhelming, you have to admit that. Matt Kemp is an All-Star?? what happened to this guy?
(cough cough PEDS)
But that is precisely what it is. I don't like it either. I bitched every time Ripken made the All-Star team the last 5 years of his career. He wasn't deserving, he was Cal Ripken and that was enough for fans.
I used to absolutely LOVE the All-Star game when I was a kid but its quickly morphing into the Pro-Bowl for me
He gets in..named by coaches because several elected pitchers will not be available to pitch
I am going to take this the other way for the sake of argument.
Should there be a limit on players from the same team?
we sent brock holt once
i always remember the "who makes it form this shit team?" every year with KC and TB back in the day.
I don't think TB should even have a team
This conversation is dumber than when people want to reinvent the HOF.
Blake Snell will go on vacation, he'll be okay. You'll be okay.
Blake Snell may be ok but I can't say the same about myself.
Exactly, it's an exhibition and a showcase, where a guy like Blake Snell should be showcased and not left out because other guys less deserving had to represent.
Not every team has an All Star. Want to be an All star? Play better baseball.
If you host the game you get one. The rest are all on merit.
Well, I feel real bad for Blake Snell and his vacation. Real bad.
I bet all the fans out there can't wait to watch Tigers legend Joe Jimenez next week!
I bet 20 thousand kids will watch to see if he plays.
I did it with Travis Fryman back in the day.
Your wish is never going to be granted. Cuz it's dumb.
Who cares? Kids are dumb.
They'll be sleeping
