The Los Angeles Dodgers only garnered four All-Star Game selections and a prominent Dodgers player has a theory as to why that is.

Closer Kenley Jansen told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday that it is Dodgers fans’ fault that Corey Seager and Justin Turner are not starting the game set to take place in Miami next week.

“I’ll say it loud and clear again. It’s the Dodger fans’ fault,” he said.

Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart got the nod over Seager, who was named to the list of reserves along with Cody Bellinger. Cozart’s batting numbers are higher than Seager’s, but Cozart’s power numbers are not where Seager’s are.

Cozart is batting 321/.404/.558 with nine homers and 33 RBI. Seager is hitting .299/.401/.511 with 13 homers and 55 RBI.

As far as Turner, he was not even named to the list of reserves. Only playing 58 games this season may have something to do with that. Compare that to the tear Nolan Arenado has been on and you can see why Turner was not on the list.

NBC Sports pointed out that not all Dodgers fans have even seen any of their players actually play. DirecTV and Charter Communications are still fighting over television rights and it is hurting the entire Southland.
