    Interesting that you had these assets in minor system and won a Wold Series this past season, nice work. I would have probably wanted two picks although bottom 1st rounders can be hit or miss.

    I dont know much about this team that took over accept what I just researched. This team hasnt had much playoff success accept a flucky WS win in a season where they won 79 games. In the 20 or so prior seasons under another's control they made 5 playoff appearances and always seemed to be something like a 75 win team.

    We havent had many bites on trade targets as this team was built purely on sluggers. The one move we made was sending a terrific young slugger Lynn Goldsmith to STL for a 1st rounder. Goldsmith is having more success there then his hot start in Houston where he's over 1.000 OPS and is over the 50 HR mark.

    with the #10 received for Goldy (yes I used the MLB/STL connection there) The stros selected Ronan Jacobson who should be a nice top of the order bat that will transition to the OF and probably be in the BIGS at 22.

    The team is excited about their top pick this season Seth Morman who is only missing an arm from his toolbox, while last season's 1st rounder was with limited scouting but should be a decent LH bat converting to 3B.

    Aside from that after 2 less than stellar draft classes the team is hopeful for the future that also includes a couple nice pitching prospects also.

    In '69 the team has been a few games over .500 most of the season but has trended closer to that mark recently but if hopeful for an 80 win season.
