The Astros are on fire, with the pitching getting the bulk of the credit. Andy and Ray also talk about how power in the offense has been relevant with home runs becoming more of a regular event. Can Chris Carter, Jason Castro, and the rest of the gang provide steady run support?

Some of the other highlights include:

-Astros draft updates, pitcher or not to draft a pitcher is the question?
-Who are the prospects that have been winners and losers in the last decade?
-Predictions for the upcoming week of baseball.
