We are a few days away from the selection of the 2011 All-Star team. Prior to the official announcement I thought I would project who should make it.  I did follow the rules of 34 roster spots per squad and that each team had to have one representative. I didn't follow the current fan voting because they always seem to go with popularity instead of who actually is deserving.  So I present to you my all-star roster predictions 2011 edition.
