While the Astros were taking in a sunny day in beautiful San Diego California, I was putting together these links sponsored by Sunny Delight...actually not really. I don't know how Minute Maid would feel about that, it just sounded good.
I know some have some reservations about calling up Lyles this early because of super two status, but it appears the Astros may have just skirted that issue. We won't know anything for sure at the moment, but over the next year or two things should begin to clear up.
I was a bit surprised by this list. It's easy to forget that while the farm system is bad, it's not entirely void of players who do eventually make it to the big leagues.
