We all knew the game was a joke, but I don't think anyone expected that.

Unbelievable.

I don't see how one selects Betances over Sale.

Best WHIP in the game and not an allstar.

2nd best ERA in the AL.

What a joke.

Sale > Buehrle .

In all my years, this is the worst snub I've seen. Is he in the last man in vote maybe?

We all know the truth. Part of me is glad that he gets a chance to rest his arm and relax.

Easy. Farrell took his own guy, Lester, over Sale.

In a year where someone like Jeter can be voted a starter but Sale is left off - it is what the AS game is - a farce. They try to play up the game for home field advantage but continue to let this crap happen. It would be slightly better if the starters were chosen by the manager. Best thing for Jeter to do now if he cares about the best players playing is play one inning and step aside.

I still think there's a pretty good chance he makes it in. He still might be in the last man vote, and even if not, there tend to be at least a few replacements every year. Plus, look on the bright side - if he doesn't go, extra rest for him never hurts.

Lester 2.73 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 122 K (not down time due to injury), .242 BAA

Sale 2.16 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, 96 K (while missing a month of the season), .194 BAA

Trying to be fair, I'm thinking back to Ozzie picking seven or eight guys from the Sox in 2006. I'm pretty sure Buehrle didn't deserve to go that year. Contreras was still pitching well. I don't recall if anyone got screwed.

In this case, you have to look at the manager picks (not the player votes).

These are the guys Farrell picked:

LHP: Jon Lester *, Red Sox
LHP: Glen Perkins *, Twins
LHP: David Price *, Rays
RHP: Max Scherzer *, Tigers

Lester is the only Red Sox player, so I can't blame Farrell too much for that. He had to pick SOMEBODY.

I'm more irritated that Betances from the Yankees was chosen. I mean, they already have the starting SS and likely the SP.
