Astros GM Jeff Luhnow stopped by the main team Twitter account on Wednesday in advance of Houston's final Grapefruit League game against the New York Mets to answer some questions. Fans could tweet the hashtag #AskLuhnow at him and hope for a response.

There was some great insight in there, especially on two pitchers to watch (Brady Rodgers and Andrew Thurman), plus timetables for George Springer and Carlos Correa (now and later) and some great advice for anyone looking to get into baseball operations.
