BA posts mid-season top 50 Prospect Rankings & 'Stros have 2.

 

Amongst all the Roy Halladay trade speculation ( & prospects the Blue Jays will receive speculation) I happened upon an Article by Baseball America that lists their new mid-season top 50 prospect rankings.  I'm not a BA subscriber so I couldn't tell you how to get there from their page and I have no idea how to post links ... so I'll just have to tell you how I got there. 

Went to mlbtraderumors.com and clicked on the link called Baseball America ranks under the rumor titled Roy Halladay Rumors:  Prospect Update.  (It's in the section talking about the Cardinals prospects & Brett Wallace).

Anyway, Jason Castro ranks # 19 and if you can count on your own Jordan Lyles ranks #41.  Not bad for an organization that ranked dead last in farm systems last year.  This obviously is nothing but possitive news.  I, for one, am sick of the national media bashing the Astros organization every chance they get.  Whether it's how imcompitent Ed Wade is - or how old and bound for failure our current roster is - or how inept our farm system is ... the national media seems to enjoy ripping us. 

No matter what happens the rest of this year and how the FO handles our Free Agent (i.e. Tejada, Valverde, Hawkins) situation at least we can look forward to hearing some possitive talk about our farm system.  I would consider Castro untouchable and probably wouldn't trade Lyles but it means we could at least seriously entertain trade talks for Jake Peavy when that surfaces again this off-season.  As I said ... I'm not advocating doing that and trading away our future but at least we got options.  And having options has got to be good.

Hey .... In Bobby Heck we trust!! ... Right?
