Nice little article from Baseball America - who never pass an opportunity to laugh at the Astros' farm system - on the Lexington Legends, and the turn-around taking place among the really young guys in the system. Thanks to Deputy Jason for the tip...
Here's the introduction:
The Astros’ farm system was rated the weakest in baseball two years in a row coming into the season, and with good reason thanks to a string of uninspiring drafts. Last season, their low Class A affiliate, the Lexington Legends, finished with a 45-93 record, the worst record of any full-season minor league team and a mark indicative of the plight of Houston’s farm system.
However, things might be looking up, if the early part of 2009 is any indication.
