I am now working on the Tampa Bay Rays Top 20 Prospect List. The next team in line is the Houston Astros, followed by the Baltimore Orioles, Toronto Blue Jays, Florida Marlins, and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Use this thread to discuss the Houston Astros farm system. This organization has been considered thin for years, but there were positive developments in 2011, including the development of Jose Altuve and J.D. Martinez, plus the big trade with the Phillies. What more needs to be done? Which sleepers do you like? Etc.
