Making a run for the border

Zach Levine has had enough of the Astros. No, not really. Zach is 'good peoples,' and has an understanding that Astros' fans care not only about the big club, but also its affiliates. And to accommodate his readers, as well as appease his own intellectual curiosity, rather that following the Astros for their next series, Levine is taking the opportunity to make a road trip. Yep, he'll be making a run for the Ohio border in route to Lexington, Kentucky to see the Astros low-A affiliate Lexington Legends play a game against the Greensboro Grasshoppers and a couple against the West Virginia Power.

For those of you not up on the Legends (which I would presume is a minority of those following Astros County), the team includes a number of kids to keep an eye on including two of my favorites: J.D. Martinez and 5'5" Jose Altuve. Be sure to keep an eye on his blog next week to read about Martinez, Altuve, and a number of other notables including 2009 first round pick Jio Mier and second round pick Tanner Bushue. In the interim, if you have questions, Levine is willing to listen and has offered you the opportunity to post those questions on his blog. Remember, ask early and often.
