Per the Collective Bargaining Agreement there are a minimum of 32 players total named as All Stars every year. This throwback to the old West v East days gets a few more dollars in pockets of players both short and long term and expands the overall list of all stars to roughly 5% of MLS which is a decent number. Today MLS announced that 13 more players were picked as All Stars by their fellow players.

The only Seattle Sounders player to join Eddie Johnson and Osvaldo Alonso is Fredy Montero. The forward has 5 goals and 4 assists in 1494 minutes of MLS play in 2012. This is his third time named as an All Star. A total of 33 players are now All Stars with three from Seattle.

The rest of the inactive All Stars are; Jon Busch (San Jose Earthquakes), Marvin Chávez (San Jose Earthquakes), Kenny Cooper (New York Red Bulls), Geoff Cameron (Houston Dynamo), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Fabián Espíndola (Real Salt Lake), Roger Espinoza (Sporting Kansas City), Kei Kamara (Sporting Kansas City), Fredy Montero (Seattle Sounders FC), Jámison Olave (Real Salt Lake), Marco Pappa (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake), Brek Shea (FC Dallas).
