2012 MLB All-Star Game: Felix Hernandez Reacts To Trade Rumors

Felix Hernandez is representing the Seattle Mariners in the 2012 MLB All-Star Game, but that doesn't stop the trade speculation from surfacing, even on Monday at the American League media session.

Hernandez had this to say, via Seattle Times:

"First of all, it's not my decision. I don't think they're going to trade me. I like Seattle, and I want to help the Seattle Mariners win a World Series.

"I have two more years. I want to stay here, It's my decision," Hernandez said of the possibility of re-signing.

Also of note: A lot of Hernandez's family showed up for his All-Star appearance in Kansas City, including his wife and his parents. This is Hernandez's third time playing in the All-Star game, but just the first time his parents get to see him play.
