Suzuki, Perkins selected for All-Star Game

"DUDE--we are so f***ing awesome." - Hannah Foslien

Kurt Suzuki and Glen Perkins will represent the Twins at Target Field for the 2014 All-Star Game. Which is awesome.

In case you haven't heard, this year's MLB All-Star Game is being held at Target Field. The rosters announced today include our catcher Kurt Suzuki and home-town star Glen Perkins. Many feel Brian Dozier was an All-Star snub, but with Jose Altuve and Robinson Cano in the American League the race for second baseman representation was apparently just a bit too much.

Pat Neshek was also selected to represent his current St. Louis Cardinals at the All-Star Game.  It's the first All-Star Game for Neshek, who is a former Twin and grew up in the Twin Cities.

Also of note, Yankees "Captain" Derek Jeter is coming to the All-Star Game, which will apparently be his last because he is retiring? I heard something like that. Let's all make sure to give him a hand at the game.

Red Sox World Series MVP, David Ortiz, who also tweeted this:

was not selected for the game. Boo. hoo. (In related news, Kevin Love dropped out of the celebrity softball game. Shocker.)

There's also a final vote where fans get to vote on the final member of each league's All-Star Team. This year's final vote includes:

AMERICAN LEAGUE
P Dallas Keuchel, HOU
P Corey Kluber, CLE
P Rick Porcello, DET
