A look into the future


Multiple posts have got me thinking: looking at Baseball America's prospect list and then looking at Cot's Baseball Contracts for the Houston Astros, I have put together possible rosters for the next few seasons.  Remember this can only happen on the rosters if nothing happens in the realm of trades.

What could these rosters look like?  Can the Astros become contenders or at least competitive based on what the farm is producing?  Are the Astros heading in the right direction or have they once again misjudged their prospects?
