Rendon and Scherzer have been selected. Thoughts or comments about the two obvious snubs from the Nats.

Dahl over Soto is a straight up felony.

1. Nats fans don't vote like other fanbases do.
2. Managers should be making all the selections. Not fans.

It’s an exhibition for fans- letting fans choose who plays is part of that

I vote for other teams' players because I want as few Nats playing in that stupid shiyte as possible.

Uh, he’s doing so to heal up.  Putting his team first.

Gotta love that smile while he's playing a game he can't wait to quit....but apparently wouldn't take a deal from us to lock him up.

Let him walk.

Per Dave Martinez, Rendon has been playing with a tight hamstring for several weeks. He has reused to skip games to rest. The team advised him to skip the All Star game and rest. He agreed.

Guessing max will skip the game too, otherwise he’d be on two days rest.

probably will throw an inning and be ready for game 3
  But, with a new kid, he may back out, too

Hopefully we have at least one representative. I imagine Soto might be one of the players in the Final Vote but the Nats have never won that out of like 7 tries now.

Final vote was eliminated this year.

Scherzer going to Cleveland but not playing, replaced by Sonny Gray per Zuck.  Would have been nice to see Strasburg or Doolittle get the slot.

Nope, they need to play in a exhibition, for reasons that can’t actually be articulated

Actually most people here shouldn’t want any player to make an all star team ever. It likely results in bonuses that increases luxury tax.

I never want any Nats player to play in the all-star. I would rather them rest up for games that count for us. Also, there have been injuries in the all-star game. Don't need that.

If the player wants to play in the game and will get enjoyment out of doing it, then I’m all for it. It’s good for guys to get recognition when they are good.
I personally think Soto should have made it and he seems like he would have enjoyed it and wanted it, so I was rooting for him to make it.

So are we the only team without a rep there?
