Letters: Not an All-Star-worthy performance

Based on this season's performance, Clayton Kershaw did not merit All-Star selection. What was that about the law of karma?

Andrew Sacks




Why does the L.A. media put such a premium on All-Star "nods"? Half of the invitees are there because of reasons that are not deserving. Take the Dodgers for instance. Kershaw was basically "last man standing." Joc Pederson is hitting .230 and our catcher is mediocre. Yet all of them made the contest. Only deserving participants are Zack Greinke and Adrian Gonzalez.

Dodgers, start focusing on the big picture. Let's win a World Series. Then we can have something to cheer...
