Just in case you were still keeping score…

Felix Hernandez is a 2011 All-Star, but he can’t be on the roster because he started this afternoon’s game for the Mariners.

So… Jon Lester is a 2011 All-Star, except he’s on the disabled list with a strained lat muscle and can’t pitch.

So… Ricky Romero is a 2011 All-Star.

For an explantion of the foolishness, read the Ogando-Sabathia-Shields post from earlier this afternoon.

When all is said and done, it looks like we’ll have about 85 players selected for the 2011 All-Star Game.
