Did the Mariners Felix Hernandez get a pity vote to the All Star team?

King Felix

Mariners insider Danny Ferguson asks the age old question, since every team has to have one All-Star, did Felix Hernandez get a pitty vote? It is true that he is the only starter in the rotation that deserves the credit, but does his record actually merit the nod? The awards have been changed to supplement the fact that Felix plays for the terrible Mariners, has the all star nomination gone the same way?
