Astros draft philosophy

ESPN's Jason Churchill and Keith Law (who ESPN is apparently trying to turn into the Next Mel Kiper Jr) break down all 30 MLB teams' draft philosophies. Again, it's Insider-only, but here is the Astros' apparent philosophy:

Astros stay within slot recommendations, often overdrafting in Round 1. Last year's top pick, catcher Jason Castro from Stanford, is off to a nice start in 2009, but C Max Sapp, P Brian Bogusevic and OF Eli Iorg haven't fared well as Houston first-round picks.

Do you want to, or should I, tell them that it's now OF Brian Bogusevic?
