Peter Gammons has nice things to say

Peter Gammons tweeted some very nice words about the Astros draft.

AL Scouting Director:"Houston took its draft position and killed it like no one else. Correa, McCullers, Ruiz...they changed the franchise."

We're biased, of course, but you can't deny that the Astros went after - and signed - high-profile, high-upside guys that other teams thought were unsignable. From the moment I saw that Ruiz wanted "Top 10" money, I thought, "Well, that's a wasted pick," but Luhnow & Co. worked the draft and maximized its potential - getting three 1st round talents in Correa, McCullers, and Ruiz.

On the job almost seven months, Luhnow is working towards getting on the Mt. Rushmore of the franchise.
