The Dodgers really have no one to blame but themselves. The MLB All-Star voting system is totally up to the fans as far as the starters go. If you want that prestigious honor, your fan base has to be dedicated and ready when voting time comes. LA is considered a huge baseball market, but fan enthusiasm and loyalty has been known to lag behind such smaller market clubs as St. Louis, Kansas City and even Minnesota.
Despite leading the National League with 55 wins as we approach the launch of this weekends All-Star game festivities and carrying a truck load of young talent and explosive offensive artillery, no Dodgers players made the NL starting team and the snubbed performers are undoubtedly ticked off.
Rookie phenom Cody Bellinger is tied for the NL lead in home runs and has cooled off a bit since his historical power surge to begin the season, but being one of the biggest stories in baseball for the past two months still didn’t earn him a starting nod. He got named as a reserve.

There should have been at least one starter representing the NL’s best squad and Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen laid the blame for any All-star snubs at the feet of the LA fans.
Certain Dodgers fans…I think its our fault..these players should have gotten more votes to get in. JT (Justin Turner) deserved be in there, Jansen said on MLB Network. He was an All-Star two years ago last year and this year. So Ill say it loud and clear again, its the Dodgers fans fault we should have voted for those guys. They deserve to be a starter.”
Sensational shortstop Corey Seager, just 23 years old, was also named as a reserve. He wouldn’t go as far as blaming the fans for losing out to Cincinnati Reds youngblood Zack Cozart.

Not on my part, Seager told reporters when asked about the lack of Dodgers on the NL starting squad. Obviously JT, that one hurts because of just what hes done. You cant argue with those numbers. Yeah he missed two weeks, but the numbers are there. Everythings there.
