CC, Tex, D-Rob get All-Star snubs CC Sabathia is tied for the major-league lead and wins with 11 and has a 3.05 ERA. Mark Teixeira ranks second in the majors with 25 home runs and ranks fourth with 65 RBIs. David Robertson leads all AL relievers with a 1.08 ERA and is second in the majors among all pitchers who've thrown at least 30 innings with 53 strikeouts. He also has a 14.31 K/9 ratio.
And yet, despite all these blow-you-away statistics, neither Sabathia, Teixeira nor Robertson will be partaking in the 2011 All-Star game on July 12 in Arizona.
Yup, all three were snubbed.
At least that is the prevailing thought in the press box. Agree? Disagree? Post your comments.
