Chicago baseball gets what it deserves for All-Star Game – Chicago Tribune

Leave it to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game of all things, a popularity contest usually worth a snicker every summer, to reinforce an everyday principle every Chicago sports fan can accept.

Sometimes people truly get what they deserve.

And so it is that White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia and Cubs closer Wade Davis were the only two local players selected Sunday for the Mid-Summer Classic on July 11 in Miami and nobody in town dared to complain — especially on the North Side.

Garcia, hitting .318 with 11 home runs and 51 RBIs, belongs in any showcase of baseball’s best players in the first half of the 2017 season; Cubs position players do not. It seems as simple as it is extraordinary.
