Each year when the MLB All-Star Game rosters are selected, it seems as if there are complaints about certain players being held from the roster. The 2014 class is no different as there has already been an uproar about a few all-star snubs.

Let's take a look at the five biggest National League All-Star roster snubs.

Anthony Rizzo is one of the brightest young stars that we have in the league today. Although his numbers aren't exactly stunning, they're definitely good enough to earn a spot on the roster. Maybe playing for the Cubs was his biggest downfall.

As one of the top closers in baseball with just one blown save in 24 chances this season, Huston Street is earning literally zero respect because of the team he plays on. This seems to be a trend with snubs.

2014 Stats: 1.13 ERA, 23 Saves, 24 SVO, 0.78 WHIP, 33 K

Since Jose Fernandez went down with a season-ending elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery, Henderson Alvarez has seriously stepped up his game. He is one of the league leaders in ERA, but apparently that wasn't enough.

2014 Stats: 6-3, 2.27 ERA, 70 K, 1.24 WHIP

Not necessarily a household name, but Alfredo Simon should darn well be. He is one of the league leaders in wins and he's posting a pretty impressive ERA in his seventh MLB season.

Justin Morneau could end up being the comeback player of the year, but that wasn't enough to earn him a spot on this year's National League All-Star roster. He's having his best season in four years and he's earning no respect.

2014 Stats: .316 AVG, 13 HR, 59 RBI, .348 OBP
