Astros sign another 2B

Missed this over the weekend, but the Astros have signed 2B Jose Carlos Thompson for $250,000. SI's Melissa Sagura points out that he's Aroldis Chapman's "BFF," and that he hit .440/.484/.729 at Western Oklahoma State. Western Oklahoma State's website lists Kurt Russell as their head coach, and facts about the 2009 team. FYI.
