Chris Archer on Blake Snell’s snub from All-Star roster: ‘Something like that can’t happen’

Rays pitcher Chris Archer took to social media to protest teammate Blake Snell’s omission from the American League All-Star roster, saying that players https://www.authenticnflcheapjerseys.us.com/ who vote for All-Stars didn’t do our due diligence.

In a video posted Sunday night on his Instagram account, Archer said it was a joke that Snell, who has the best ERA in the AL, was not a unanimous All-Star selection.

Something like that can’t happen, Archer said. He leads the league in ERA. That means he’s given up the fewest amount of runs per nine innings out of any starting pitcher in the league. … Players, coaches, managers — we have to do a better job with the selection process so we can put the best talent out on the field for the fans in the Midsummer Classic.

If you didn’t have him on your ballot, I hope that next year you take it a little bit more serious and put in the due diligence, because this is important.

To see all of them having my back, that’s special, Snell said.

He also received support on Twitter from New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who was a guest of Snell’s at a Rays game earlier this season and took batting practice wearing Snell’s No. 4 jersey.

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a pair of RBI doubles and Xander Bogaerts hit a two-run triple as Boston scored five runs in the third and won for the 15th time in 18 games.

We’re having fun. It’s pretty good a lineup right now from top to bottom, Boston manager Alex Cora said.

Matt Barnes (3-2) got the win with one inning of relief, striking out the side in the seventh after the Rangers had pulled within 6-4 with two runs in the sixth. He was the fourth of five relievers the Red Sox rode to another victory after getting three solid innings from Hector Velazquez, who was making his first start since April and wasn’t expected to go much longer Tuesday after spending the previous two months in the bullpen.

Nunez blooped another one into center in the sixth that Deshields dove for. Nunez was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double.

The challenge is when the ball isn’t in the air long enough to make the catch, Rangers manager Jef Banister said.

Sale made his 200th career start. … It was the 11th time in his 20 starts this season cheap nfl jerseys he gave up one run or none. … It was his ninth game this season with at least 10 strikeouts and his fifth straight with at least 11 strikeouts and no more than one walk.

Rangers: Deshields left the game after diving for Nunez’s bloop in the sixth inning. He was evaluated for neck and shoulder problems. Later the same inning, Odor talked to the training staff after stretching awkwardly to hold the bag on a force at second.
