Matt Kemp & Clayton Kershaw will be at the 2012 All-Star Game

Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw are the two Dodgers who will represent the team at the 2012 All-Star Game.

Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw are headed back to the All-Star game.

Kemp and Kershaw were selected to their second National League All-Star teams Sunday. Both players made their All-Star debuts last year.

Both played well enough, but both partially got in due to name recognition…

Excluded from the team were Andre Ethier, who is tied for third in the NL with 55 runs batted in, and Chris Capuano, who is 9-3 with a 2.69 ERA.

…which is exactly why it’s hard to complain about Andre Ethier and Chris Capuano getting left out. Especially when Zack Greinke and James McDonald didn’t even make it.
