Game 74 Thread: June 18th, 2019, 6:10 CDT. Astros vs. Reds

Verlander takes the mound in the role of stopper tonight. Can the Astros bats get back on track and pull one out on the road? Join the discussion.

Astros All-Prospect Team During Luhnow’s Tenure

Astros All-Prospect Team During Luhnow’s Tenure

Check out the best MiLB performances since Luhnow took over as GM While perusing Twitter the other day, I came up with an idea. The idea was to look back at the Astros system and create an all-prospect team composed of the best minor league seasons during Jeff Luhnow’s tenure as GM.
