Baseball America profile on Lexington

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.

They must be pretty solid if BA has something good to say about them. They pretty much just rip us nowadays.


This is a breath of fresh air.

True. It might not be good now, but it's getting better. I think Bobby Heck is the most valuable front office member in the organization.
