Astros Minor League Recap: August 6, 2012

Lets get this out of the way first. If you haven't voted already, go vote for the minor league player of the week here. IF Mike Kvasnicka is in the lead by the time we start recording the live podcast next Sunday, there will be a contest for the listeners of the LIVE podcast. The winner gets one of Sean's signed Jason Castro bats. Now, this is only for the LIVE podcast listeners as it will be during the podcast. So, get your votes in and come listen to the live podcast every Sunday evening.

Now, clinicals are finally over and I have the next three weeks off from class. So, I will be putting out some articles on the minor leagues over the next few weeks including a review of the TCB top 30 prospects from the off-season. I'm open to suggestion on any article ideas as well.
