Snubbing the Snubs

I renew my annual objection to the furor over "All-Star snubs," which is presently underway after Mark Redman made the AL team over Francisco Liriano. I say this is really no big deal, for three reasons:

1. The All-Star Game isn't that big a deal.

2. Nobody ever remembers, even a day later, who did or didn't make it, and

3. Every year, most of the players who are "snubbed" end up making the team anyway, since so many All-Stars always drop out due to injury or lack of interest. Every year, this happens, and every year, everyone forgets. Enough already.
