It took way too long for Pablo Sandoval to receive national recognition at the All-Star Game.

Every season, Major League Baseball makes mistakes when assembling its rosters for the All-Star Game. In the last 10 years, actually, there have been plenty of blatant snubs on both the AL and NL sides.

So long as the selection process doesn't change, we'll always see deserving individuals left off.

MLB fans—many of whom are biased and/or ill-informed—vote on the starting position players, and they're allowed to do so dozens of times from multiple accounts.
