Somehow it seems like the team the Astros send prospects to never wins, so we never get to see any of our guys in the final championship game on TV. Alas.

It's not for lack of contributions by our guys, though. Martin and Laureano are one and two respectively in OPS on the Glendale roster (the only two guys with a 1.000+ OPS). Granted Martin only has three games played, being the taxi squad guy, but still.

Stubbs looked a little better this week, and thanks to that and some walks, he owns a respectable .729 OPS while playing primarily catcher. And nice to see a bounce-back game for Martes, too.

Dorris continues to get it done with his funky mechanics. Here he is, for those who didn't catch it on Twitter already:
