The Oklahoman would like to continually remind you that the farm system isn't as good as the Rangers'

In an article for The Oklahoman, Matt Peterson kicks the dead horse:

The Houston Astros might have a star in their logo, but the organization is virtually bereft of any in its farm system. That showed in Oklahoma City’s series win over Round Rock this week. The RedHawks closed out their first series with the Astros’ Triple-A affiliate with a 3-2 win Thursday night at AT&T Bricktown Ballpark.

Oklahoma City won three of the four games in the series.

But just hold on, says Jason Castro:

"I think we have a lot of good guys coming up. I think, obviously, it was down for a few years, but the class I have come up with is a strong group. There’s a lot of outfield talent in Double-A. We have a couple of promising pitchers in Jordan Lyles and Ross Seaton that are going to be really good. We’ll see it in the next couple of years. It’s just a matter of time before we start pulling it together.”
