Felix Hernandez is an All-Star but Should he Start? I don’t think anyone is going to argue that one way or another the Ace of the Seattle Mariner’s starting rotation in 2014, Felix Hernandez, is an All-Star.  No question about it!  Write his name in ink! But should he get to start that game? While the decision of who starts is ultimately up to the AL All-Star Team Manager, which in this case is John Farrell of the Red Sox, typically the AL starter with the most impressive stats is the guy that gets the nod. With that, here are the top 4 starters in the AL so far in 2014: PLAYER          GP       GS        IP         H          R          ER        BB        SO       W         L           WAR   WHIP  ERA Tanaka                16        16        115.2   92        30         27        18         127     11        3            4.4       0.95     2.10 Hernandez         18        18        128.1
