    From highlights,...from other teams...from the chron's list on the website...They are there. ex-Astros players...Most of them, above average, performance wise...you can name 5 or 6 good ones of the top of your head...Is this seemingly a problem that the Astros have moreso...Or does it seem so because we are area fans???

    Now?

    most of the good players the astros "lost" are overthe hill or retired. But off the top of my head, all time i would say player that the astros had but lost (gave away) before their primes: Joe Morgan, Curt Schilling, Kenny Lofton, Johan Santana, Bobby Abreu, Steve Finley, Ken Cammy, Luis Gonzo, Melvin Mora, Garcia, Guillen.
    The only ones that are still in their primes are Santana, and maybe Guillen.

    most teams probably have similar list over 40 years. the 1990's astros did lose an abnormal amount of all-star players before their primes, but other than that period, I don't think they've lost an abnormal amount.

    and every other professional team in the history of ever; this is not unique to the houston-area.

    hell, just the guys you mentioned - schilling, santana and abreu - have been with... this is off the top of my head... 12 different organizations combined. ESPECIALLY in baseball, guys are going to move through multiple systems.

    The Astros are no different than any other team in that regard.
