The reigning AL MVP deserves to represent the Chicago White Sox at the All-Star Game.

Jose Abreu has been the Chicago White Sox best player for a long time now. He has already been an All-Star three times but won’t be going this year. It is a shame that the reigning AL MVP isn’t going to be there. He is clearly one of the best first basemen in the American League but they didn’t feel that he deserves to be there this year.

He certainly isn’t having as good of a year as he had last year but that would be a little unrealistic to expect from him. Of all the snubs on the White Sox, this one probably feels the worst because of the fact that he has helped this team through thick and thin. Abreu was voted into the “final three” to be a starter in the game but was ultimately beaten out. After that, a snub came his way.

For Abreu, this isn’t that big of a deal. He wasn’t as impactful in the first half as we are used to seeing him so you can expect a huge second half. If he is the Abreu that we know he can be down the stretch and into the playoffs, they are going to be very scary for the rest of the teams in the league.
