AL:

Someone might want to inform Bochy, Ron Washington, and the entire New York fan base that the all star game rewards the winner home field advantage, and being dumbass homers picking their own pooty players hurts them in the long run.

Definitely some snubs, but that's to be expected of any all star game.

Wilson has really not had a great year and his selection over Cordero and Kimbrel. Don't get me started on Timmy and Cain beating Hanson.

CC also got screwed by this in the AL, a deserving Yankee that didn't make it.

And poor Andrew McCutchen...not even up for the final vote.

Beltran is having a decent year, but McCutch should've gotten the nod over him. I also agree that Hanson was snubbed; as well as, CC

McCutchen was definitely the biggest snub.

I'm glad CC wasn't voted in though. About damn time a Yankee/Yankee fans know what it feels like when another player gets voted in over them, even if they're not the better player. Besides, his ERA isn't even top 15 and wins are one of the most meaningless stats in all sports so I don't really recognize that as a legitimate stat.

Michael Morse was also a HUGE snub.
#5 in batting average for 1b
#5 in HR's
#5 in RBI
#3 in OPS

He's also been fantastic with the glove at 1B.

At the very least he deserved a spot on the bench. He is the ONLY reason the Nationals aren't 10 games under .500 right now.

The McCutchen thing is just sad.

Morse stats still don't match up as well against Votto and Prince in the runs/rbi totals with is the big thing is the voting.

Gabby Sanchez on the other hand, you can make the argument...but thats another of Bochy's picks.

There were a few snubs here and there, but the Fans actually did a pretty damn good job in voting for players for this All-Star game. Where it got really messed up is when the managers started picking players.

The managers didn't do to hot of a job in picking players that should've been picked.

Also don't get me started on freaking Jeter getting picked, he's one of the worst defensive Short Stops in the league and now he can't freaking hit either.

McCutchen not getting voted in or picked by the managers is sad, I hope someone has to pull out and they put the kid in. He clearly deserves to be playing in this years game.

The Jeter pick is probably the worst pick, IMO. He's terribly overrated, and always has been. I think this is one of the better games in recent memory, in terms of voting though.

The All Star game is a popularity contest. If you see it for what it is, then it's not bad. The best players are rewarded at the end of the season with gold gloves, Cy Young's, Silver Sluggers, and MVPs.

False.

The gold glove does have some bias, but it's a bit more objective than the All-Star game.
