Over the weekend, the Astros held a mini-camp in Kissimmee, with conflicting reports on how effective it was.
Infielder Jacke Healey:
"It was great. We got to go down there and interact with the all the guys and get to meet some of the teammates before we got up here."
Manager Jim Pankovits:
"I kind of liked it. It gave all the kids an opportunity to be in a relaxed atmosphere, get some work done. It was a great way to break the ice. (The Astros) did it to get the kids off to a better start and allow us to evaluate their talent a little bit more to make decisions on where they would be placed (in Houston's system)."
