Yu Darvish may not think he is worthy, but he is going to the All-Star Game. When the final vote tallies were counted on Thursday, MLB announced that Darvish had won the final man vote over Chicago's Jake Peavy. Some 45 million votes were cast online and via Twitter in the five days since the final man ballot was announced. Darvish becomes the eighth Ranger to head to the game along with C Mike Napoli, 2B Ian Kinsler, 3B Adrian Beltre, SS Elvis Andrus, OF Josh Hamilton, LHP Matt Harrison and RHP Joe Nathan. The Rangers' previous high for representation had been six. Only days before the final vote ballot was announced, Darvish said he did not think himself "worthy" of being an All-Star.
