The halfway point of the season is quickly approaching and it's almost time for All-Star Weekend—when players forget their individual teams and try to earn home-field advantage for their league's World Series representative.
The midsummer classic is always entertaining to watch. Whether Ichiro smacks an inside-the-parker or Brad Penny throws 14 straight fastballs to kick it off, we're never disappointed. Unless of course you hail from the National League, in which case you've been disappointed since the turn of the millennium, with the exception of last year.
What's the most fun about the All-Star Game, however, is seeing your favorite players team up and compete with the league's finest. So who will get voted to the AL squad from the Mariners this year?
