The 2011 MLB All-Star Game has wrapped up in favor of the National League. Therefore, one of 16 National League teams will be rewarded with home-field advantage during the upcoming World Series.
The Houston Astros will not be one of these 16 teams—this year anyways. However, do not despair. There is still plenty to applaud.
There is Hunter Pence's run in the aforementioned All-Star Game. He also showed off some arm in gunning down Jose Bautista at the plate.
There are also some minor league players who have been performing well this season and have earned the right to be named to the 2011 mid-season Houston Astros Minor League All-Star Team.
This is not a top prospect list. The players at each position are not necessarily Houston's best prospect at their position.
