BP's Top Ten Astros Prospects

Up and at 'em today as AC recovers from a weekend in Oklahoma for a funeral...

Baseball Prospectus posted their Top 10 Astros prospects. You need a subscription to read the whole thing, but the free part they handed out is the list:

1. Jon Singleton
2. Carlos Correa
3. George Springer
4. Delino DeShields, Jr
5. Jarred Cosart
6. Jonathan Villar
7. Domingo Santana
8. Rio Ruiz
9. Lance McCullers
10. Mike Foltynewicz

A few things about this list:

*Four of this list (Singleton, Cosart, Villar, Santana) came to the Astros via trades with the Phillies - Singleton, Cosart, and Santana in the Pence trade, and Villar in the Oswalt trade.
*Correa, Ruiz, and McCullers were all drafted in 2012.
*Only Singleton and Cosart spent most of 2012 above High-A.

Tell me your feelings.

The reports on each prospect are pretty cool. Definitely woth the read. I dont like the idea of both Cosart and McCullers in the pen. Most excited about correa (duh) but really interested in Rio Ruiz and Santana. Things could look pretty interesting in 2015 .

How do the Astros let Blake Ford go after his A-ball season. This is "Money Ball" on steroids imo
