Every year, we fans screw up the All-Star voting by picking our favorite players instead of the best ones. It's tradition.
Then, the managers, coaches, and players fill in the remaining spots by, once again, picking the most popular stars and their teammates instead of the players who are, you know, actually the best in the game.
The result is a smorgasbord of marquee names who coast to roster spots, up-and-comers fighting for recognition, and a handful of guys who make the entire MLB fan-base scratch its collective head.
A few deserving players are inevitably lost in the shuffle, and each year I think I've grown numb to the sensation of unjust team selection. But then I see the rosters and realize that the snubs are worse than I could have possibly imagined.
In these slides are the most ridiculously snubbed players. Every single manager or coach who facilitated the decisions to leave these guys off the team should be ashamed.
