That’s right, boys and girls, with a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night, the Houston Astros have clinched the number one pick in the 2013 MLB First Year Player Draft for the second straight year. Once again, the focus of this club is rebuilding and replenishing the farm system to build a winning club for the future….so this should help.
In the meantime, those of us following the big club are learning to follow the minors to see what sort of talent we’re likely to see in the coming years.
