Might the Astros be one of those teams - a la Pittsburgh & Kansas City - who only get the token All-Star nod?
Maybe. Pudge is 3rd among NL catchers in All-Star Voting (expect some blazing hot rhetoric closer to the Midsummer Crappic).
Yadier Molina - 629,007
Jason Kendall - 471,557
Pudge - 423,369
Brian McCann - 416,149
Pudge is the only Astro as high as third place in voting.
If you had to choose one Astro as an All-Star, it should probably be Tejada. Wandy should be in the mix. Pence has a good case as a reserve outfielder. Anyone else?
