The All Star selections were made, and Bruce Bochy is now feeling the heat. Marlins manager Jack McKeon and Pirates manager Clint Hurdle have publicly came out and are very upset with his selections.
This happens every year, so it really doesn’t bother me to hear them complaining about their guys not getting in. I do recall Pablo Sandoval being left off, so Phillies manager Charlie Manuel could get Jayson Werth in. That’s when they needed an injury replacement for Carlos Beltran.
This is going to continue to happen every year if a new system to select players isn’t created. If McKeon and Hurdle want their players on the All Star team next year. They may want to try really hard this season to make the playoffs and win the World Series. That’s their best chance of insuring their players will be apart of next year’s All Star Game. I’m just saying…
