Fangraphs on Astros' Prospects

Fangraphs is running articles on each team's prospects.  They get around to the Astros here.  Most of you who frequent Crawfish Boxes won't learn anything you didn't know.  But maybe you want to check it out just in case.  The author says the Astros are in the lower third of farm teams.  And the first comment he gets is to complain that his lower third description doesn't identify the Astros as the very worst.  He replies that he is trying to be nice to Astros' fans.  The article mentions that Felipe Paulino reputed could hit 102 mph on the gun.  I recall those statements...I think they came from his A ball years, but it reminds us why Paulino was so highly regarded.
