Ken­ley Jansen blasts Dodgers fans over all-star vot­ing

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Dodgers closer Ken­ley Jansen is blam­ing his own fans for not turn­ing out the all-star vote for his team­mates.

The Na­tional League base­ball lead­ers don’t have a start­ing player on the NL squad re­vealed Sun­day for the game in Miami on July 11. Jansen, left-han­der Clay­ton Ker­shaw, short­stop Corey Sea­ger and first base­man/out­fielder Cody Bellinger made the team via the player bal­lots, but starters are elected by the fans.

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

Jansen is es­pe­cially up­set that Sea­ger and third base­man Justin Turner weren’t picked as starters. He added that Sea­ger should have beaten out Cubs short­stop Ad­di­son Rus­sell for the start­ing spot last year.
