The Mariners are rolling, with 13 victories in their last 17 games, after completing a three-game sweep in Houston.
The schedule provided the club with an open date Thursday in Chicago, but theres no day off here at The News Tribune, where we play every day. So we sent out a call on twitter for questions.
You asked. Were responding
@kylehead8: what chance do you give Kyle Seager of making the ASG hes got the numbers but not the big name of Beltre or Longoria..
Ive got a Seager piece coming out in Fridays paper. (Tease: The Mariners think he can still get a lot better.)
As for your question I think its possible he gets an All-Star summons but believe its unlikely. Its not that hes not deserving. But the Mariners already have two locks in Robinson Cano and Felix Hernandez.
All 15 clubs have to be represented on the 34-player squad. The math works against Seager. (The same goes for Fernando Rodney, who leads the American League in saves.)
