Sox could not care less about All-Star 'snubs'

While you'd think a team with the most wins in baseball would be chock full of All-Stars, only three Red Sox were named to this year's AL All-Star Team: David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Clay Buchholz.   To hear the players and managers talk about it, the lack of representation from the squad doesn't seem to matter.   From the Herald: “Do I want to be an All-Star?
