John Sickels' Top 20 Astros prospects

John Sickels posted his Top 20 prospect list for the Astros yesterday. Click the link for the full description of the players, but here's the list:

1. Carlos Correa
2. Jon Singleton
3. George Springer
4. Jarred Cosart
5. Lance McCullers
6. Delino DeShields
7. Mike Foltynewicz
8. Nick Tropeano
9. Rio Ruiz
10. Domingo Santana
11. Jonathan Villar
12. Nolan Fontana
13. Asher Wojciechowski
14. Robbie Grossman
15. Marc Krauss
16. Vincent Velasquez
17. Adrian Houser
18. Ariel Ovando
19. Aaron West
20. Brady Rodgers

Now, that's what I call a rapid turnaround. In two years, this farm system has gone from empty to robust.

Six of those guys came from our 2012 draft!

Remember the dark years where we couldn't even sign our first four rounds of players drafted?

Things are definately looking up. In the same sense I wish we had another A prospect in our system. We should when we pick 1st this year. I kind of hope we have another development year and are in the bottome 3 in wins this year so we could have another really high pick. I almost wish we had one more year of having the 1st pick. Then our system would really be top flight. It's not just getting the 1st pick, but that each of your picks are higher up.
