Dansby Swanson was snubbed of All-Star start
In the premiere of "The Other Side of the Glass," hosts Chris Thomas and Beau Morgan were left with a bad taste in their mouths after the announcement of the MLB All-Star starters. Mainly because Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson did not get the start, but instead the Dodgers' Trea Turner did.
The hosts went on to compare the stats of each player to make their case that Swanson was snubbed of his deserved spot. Listing out that Swanson leads Turner in batting average, on-base percentage, and home runs.
Couple his offensive production with his defensive prowess and Swanson certainly has a case to be the starter.
"Dansby Swanson is to the Braves right now, what Freddie Freeman was for the last 10 years," Morgan said. "He's a leader."
When taking everything into account it does feel like another case of the bigger name in the bigger market, Turner, taking a spot from the more deserving player, Swanson.
