Astros Minor League Recap

That was hectic!  Last night was just crazy!  I'm not going review what happened because it's already well documented and discussed.  And, quite frankly, the frustrations gave me a headache.  I'm just glad something got done.  This current system is broken and something has to be done to fix it.  I'm not sure that hard slotting is necessarily the answer, but the current system needs some adjustments.


The top two starters last night had very solid games.  Dallas Keuchel finally got a solid start under his belt in AAA, and you could argue he gave up too many hits and didn't strike enough out.  But, thats the kind of pitcher he is and Anderson Hernandez was the short-stop behind him.

Paul Clemens has now recorded three games in which he has not allowed an earned run (gave up one unearned run in his first start) since joining the Astros organization.  You can argue the same points for Clemens as you did for Keuchel, but this time Clemens posted a solid groundball rate to go along with his decreasing walk totals.
