Tim Anderson is consistently one of the Chicago White Sox best players.

The Chicago White Sox has one of the best shortstops in the league. He still has never made the All-Star team in his career but this isn’t going to be the year that changes. He is well-deserving but is going to be a snub yet again. He has a batting title and a Silver Slugger on his resume now but the elusive trip to the All-Star Game is going to have to wait.

It is a very deep position in terms of Major League talent but it feels like an event Anderson should be attending. He is one of the faces of baseball at this point but they aren’t going to have him along. It feels like a mistake made by the league because of the way they market him but they are also just going by baseball skills with this. He is having a great year but as mentioned before, there are a lot of elite players that play shortstop.

Anderson is the type of player to be mad about this snub. He will come out in the second half of the season and play as you have never seen him play before. You know he wanted to be there and is going to try and prove that he belonged there. That is good for the White Sox because they need him at his best to make a long run this season.
