Astros' organizational philosophy

Interesting note in Levine's blog today regarding the Astros' approach towards Eddie's Farm (referencing the ValleyCats' playoff run):

Despite the team accomplishment, the Astros' philosophy is still looking at the minors as primarily an individual enterprise. Develop a few players a year to be big league-ready, which has been accomplished with widely varying degrees of success lately, and the player development system has for the most part done its job, wins and losses aside.

What say you?
