It’s Twitter Tuesday, and this week, I thought we’d take a look at the reactions from all of you in regard to the four Seattle Mariners selected to the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.
Last week, it was announced that 2B Robinson Cano and SP Felix Hernandez had been selected to represent the Mariners in Minnesota. Then on Monday, it was announced that Felix would be the starter for the American League.
Here were some of your reactions.

And some of you were upset at some of the snubs. For example, many of you believe that Fernando Rodney should have been on the team.

But then of course, this weekend, with the announcement that David Price was pulling out of the game due to an illness, Rodney, the AL leader in saves, was named to the team.
Of course, Rodney is not the only member of the bullpen that you think should be on the All-Star team.

It’s hard to justify middle relievers on the All-Star team when there are so many big name starters and closers that they want to get in the game. Most fans outside of their town couldn’t name more than one member of another team’s bullpen.
But that doesn’t take away the fact that without this bullpen, the Mariners wouldn’t be in the position they are so far this season.
Many Mariners fans wanted to see Robinson Cano in the home run derby, but at least Cano’s Dad was still in it.
Robinson Cano's father will throw to Yasiel Puig during tonight's home run derby. #Dodgers

Unfortunately, Puig put up a goose-egg. If you remember back to 2011, Cano and his Dad won the thing. Guess it was more Cano than Cano’s Dad.

Finally, we asked you what you thought of the latest trade rumors. Here is what you had to say.
Ahhh, the #Mariners rumors flying rampant! If we could somehow get Byrd & Brown from the Phillies AND Price…I'd be down with that.
