Random rant: Why is Charlie Blackmon always an all-star? Dude is mediocre. He was good two years ago. I mean his game is made for Coors so props to the Rockies but I'm always annoyed when he's on the roster over better dudes. Same goes for all the Cubs.

68 wRC+ on the road for Blackmon.

Same for the Cubs players? I’m assuming you just haven’t paid attention to the years their All Stars are having.

Yeah, they have 3 guys with an OPS+ over 130 (Contreras, Bryant, Rizzo). And several starters with ERA+ in the 135-150 range. All-Stars be all-starrin'.

In sad contrast, we have one guy OPS+ing at 111 (DeJong) and one at 121, the now-injured Ozuna. Our only starter with an ERA+ over 100 also has a 1.51 WHIP so the less said, the better.

I should have clarified that I meant the times they were undeserving. Contreras and Lester being all stars last year for example.
