Astros Minor League Recap

I really appreciate the article ideas and I'm hopefully going to start putting some of those out this week.  You can continue to leave some if you like.  Although, I'm going to put a stipulation on them, no major league comps.  I didn't mention that mostly because I forgot all about them, but I'm not a big comp. person for a few reasons.  For starters, I'm really bad with coming up with comps and I don't like to label players futures.  I'd rather let their performances speak for themselves and let it play out on their own.  I understand the exercise and the fun that can be brought with comps, it's just something I avoid in my own evaluations. 

I really did like the idea of digging into Chris Wallace's defense and I'm really looking forward to doing that one.  I also liked the Telvin Nash and Jonathan Singleton comparison.  Nash does seem like a lower level version of Singleton, so it'll be interesting to see just what sets them apart.  The Ross Seaton article idea was a good one and I'm going to do that one as well.  The prospect review of some big prospects like Oswalt, Berkman, Pence and others versus what happened with prospects like Towles was a really good idea as well and I may dig into that one as well.  I also got one about reviewing where our top 30 should start next year and that's probably one I'll tackle in the off-season.

So, if you have anymore, just leave them in the comments again.
