Minor League Ball prospect list

After discussing the Astros prospect list with readers the last few days, John Sickels over at minorleagueball.com has compiled his top prospect list. The top two are Singleton and Springer, both rated as B+. Once again, the top of the list is dominated by kids brought over in trades recently, accounting for 4 of the top 5 and 6 of the top 8. I don't know if that means our homegrown players are that bad, or these last few trades have been that good.

Tell us something we don't know: "There is a large group of Grade C prospects"

For my part, I'm going to continue touting LHP Alex Sogard, who isn't mentioned at all in this list, as a sleeper prospect until he proves me wrong. Kids got some good stuff and solid peripheral stats. Also, what should we call Eddie's Farm after Eddie's gone? I suppose just change the "Eddie" part?

Maybe Sogard's Farm? I am high on this guy to, a hard throwing lefty is few and far between with the Astros, not sure why, but I think our upper management avoids them like the plaque.

Hopefully we call it "Andy's Farm."

Mazel Tov!
