Differing opinions on whether Ibanez was snubbed

Raul Ibanez clubbed another home run Monday night, giving him 22 on the season to go along with 51 RBIs, a .260 average and an .869 OPS. That’s not bad for any major leaguer, let alone a 41-year-old veteran who wasn’t expected to be an everyday player when the season began.

While Ibanez’s monster first half has been a pleasant surprise for the Mariners, it wasn’t enough (not yet, at least) to earn a spot on the American League All-Star team. Mike Trout, Adam Jones and Jose Bautista are the AL’s starting outfielders, while Nelson Cruz, Torii Hunter and Alex Gordon are the reserves.

Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby disagree on whether Ibanez was an All-Star snub. They share their differing opinions in the video below.
