Kenley Jansen is one of four Dodgers players selected to next week’s MLB All-Star Game.
But none of those four players will be a starter July 11 in Miami, and that Cheap Dodgers Jerseys does not sit well with the Dodgers closer.
Jansen put Dodgers fans on blast Sunday, saying it’s their fault players like Corey Seager and Justin Turner are not in the game as starters.
“I’ll say it loud and clear again: It’s the Dodger fans’ fault,” Jansen told reporters Sunday. “We should have voted for those two guys. They deserved to be the starters.”
Reds shortstop Zack Cozart got more fans votes than Seager to nab the NL starting spot. Cozart has a slash line of .322/.403/.958 with nine home runs and 33 RBIs, while Seager is hitting .305/.404/.923 with 13 homers and 42 RBIs.
He also brings a solid defensive presence, although stats may not show it. He and Steven Adams can protect the rim while allowing other star players a reprieve on that side of the ball.
He’ll pair nicely with incoming All-Star Paul George, who the Thunder will reportedly trade for. Then you pair those two with Terrance Ferguson, who was selected 21st overall in the draft and you get good replacements for Victor Oladipo, Domantas Sabonis and Taj Gibson.
Patterson’s deal puts the Thunder out of the running for Rudy Gay, as the money just won’t be there. While Gay would have been better, Patterson is a solid consolation prize. OKC’s next move will be to re-sign Andre Roberson, which ESPN reported will be “almost a lock.”
Presti is building a roster that is much improved from last season, giving Westbrook a break from having to do every single thing. The only downside to the excitement for next season is that it’s likely George will leave after one year to go play for the Lakers. But as it stands now, the Nike NFL Jerseys From China Thunder could make some noise in the West.
