MLB All-Star Snubs: Should Alex Gordon Be An All-Star?

Keith Law of ESPN finds it odd that Billy Butler and Mike Moustakas are representing the Royals in the All-Star game this year. In fact, he believes a case could be made for Alex Gordon over both of them. What do you think about that?

This, from Law:

Choosing Butler as the token Royal with Mike Moustakas, having a superior year and, more importantly, able to play a position and do it fairly well, is odd, and you could make a good case for Alex Gordon (who performed last year, as well) over both guys. Dunn's selection seems to be a nod to homers and RBIs; with his lack of defensive value, he's well behind guys such as Gordon and Jackson.
