Astros Weekend Minor League Recap

I want to thank everyone for reading my write-up yesterday and retweeting it to expand the readership of that article.  It's really helping clean Zachary Hurley's name and his connection to PED's since more people are aware that this is stemming from an everyday, commonly used supplement.  It's also helping the other guys clean their names as well, even though we don't know if Jack3d was the culprit in those cases.  I am currently working on finding more information on their cases and will let you know when I find anything out.

I even received an email from Hurley himself yesterday thanking me for helping him get his story out and I'm setting up a small interview with him so we can get more details on the situation.  So, if you have anything you want asked on the situation, please email me.   

The New York-Penn League released their All-Star Roster yesterday and guess who made it!  Ben Orloff and Tyler Burnett!  Ben Orloff has been a pleasant surprise this season after really disappointing at the plate last season.  He is a solid defender and is showing some promise at the plate now.  Tyler Burnett has also shown some solid plate discipline in this short season as well as some power.  Although, he has played a good bit of time at 1B but we have no indications as to whether its from poor defense or just spreading the time around to Michael Kvasnicka, Jhonny Medrano, and even Orloff.
