The Oklahoman can't forgive the Astros for 2007

Ryan Aber must hate the Astros. The writer for the Oklahoman isn't letting it go about the Astros farm team:

While the Houston Astros were at one time considered a logical choice to move their affiliate to Oklahoma City, it now appears unlikely it will be that easy...But the Astros' player development has been less than spectacular in recent years. Poor drafts, including 2007, when Houston failed to sign any of its picks before the fifth round, have hurt the organization.

Three words: Let. It. Go.

We do find out, however, that the first day teams can negotiate with minor-league franchises is September 16.
