Blasting Off: The Minor League Report

On this edition of Blasting Off Andy and Ray discuss if Jonathan Villar may be in Houston soon, what George Springer going to AAA means, and an update on Bud Norris trade rumors. Yoni Pollak joins the program for the first time to give us his Minor League Report.


Blasting Off comes back at you with a minor league flavor. As the Astros continue to pitch well and show they have improved, so have the kids. Yoni Pollak joins not only to break down the George Springer’s and Jonathon Singleton’s of the world, but some of the lesser known prospects.




Some of the other highlights include:

-The Astros up and down defense can sometimes cause the team to look different day to day.
-Is Marc Krauss just a place holder for George Springer?
-Bud Norris says he’d like to join the San Francisco Giants if a trade happened, how do we take this?

Listen to all of this and more on the player below, fellow Hill Climbers! Stay tuned for our new episode next week, and feel free to tweet us questions or comments at @astrosCTH.
