The Astros were on a ten game winning streak prior to Monday’s action. The team has found a way to stockpile minor league talent while bringing in quality veterans to help the major league team win. The Astros may have the 8th best minor league system, but the quantity of talent is better than others. With the Astros already in playoff competition, the Astros might be parting with some of the future skills to win now. While Astros look to trade for a proven starter, the only untouchables are Mark Appel and Carlos Correa.
While the minor league affiliates have cooled down a little from their torrid start, most of the teams still have a winning record. Winning has become contagious throughout the organization this season. The group of prospects rising with Carlos Correa has won a championship the past two years. The future is bright. Let’s look at what the future Astros have done this week.
