Astros County's 1st Annual Mid-Season Adopt-a-Player

So, not kidding here, we're going to adopt an Astros minor-leaguer. That means sending him boxes of macaroni & cheese, books, cds, magazines, etc. Because I just read Matt McCarthy's Odd Man Out: A Year on the Mound with a Minor League Misfit (highly recommended, by the by), and it sounds like minor-leaguers need all the help they can get - except Jiovanni Mier. He has $1.3 mil in the bank.

So I'm picking a player from each level, from the GCL Astros to Corpus. Now we need to vote on who is going to be the Astros County's Adopted Astro... We'll do this again next year, except we'll do it earlier in the season. Inspiration doesn't have a schedule, it's just the price of trying to be the best Astros blog out there. Voting is open until the end of the week.
