Yep. And Houston is completely loaded already with 8 prospects ranked in the top 100. Plus another #1 next year. We have there A club here in the QC and they are probably gonna win their league. Carlos Correa (1st pick last year) is only 18 and is hitting .322 with 77 rbis. Throw in Mark Appel and Lance McCullers pitching among several other players and in 15-16 this team could compete.
