Brandon Morrow really deserves to go as well.

You know the Mariners are having a bad year when they only get one all-star. Just pathetic for a franchise which shelled out $116 million.

Ichiro took some heat for a slow start, but he's heated up and deserves to go to the ASG this year. Can't say I think that about any other Mariner, although Morrow's been terrific, and I wanted to vote for Beltre because of his work the last half of last season.

I'd pass on Ichi, he hasn't come up clutch as he usually does which makes up for his lack of power stats.
