    Saw that Folty was demoted to Gwinnett today.

    Also, Rio Ruiz really struggling at double A. .209/.332/.593 line

    Both pretty young... I think Folty ends up in the bullpen.

    It is pretty inevitable. Command and secondary stuff aren't good enough.

    if the .593 is slugging, that is awesome, if is OPS, then he is really struggling

    It's the worst season he has had in the minors.

    Rio had a .571 OPS in April, and then a .468 OPS in May. His June OPS is .868.

    Yes, but I was think about this season. I was actually surprised how high his numbers were, since last I checked he was barely cracking a .500 OPS.

    He started terrible in A-ball before turning it completely around too.

    Brett Wallace called up by the Padres today. .305/.380/.460 at El Paso this year. Should be interesting!

    Incredible. Truly the torch bearer for Quad A players.

    Not "former" Astros, but 2 guys high on the FA list that did not wanted to sign with us.

    Miller, Injured.
    Robertson, already 4 blown saves.

    So far, Neshek and Gregerson doing better, and much cheaper

    Hmmm

    Pretty sure someone has also referred to Gregerson as trash

    Pretty good. Would like to get him back, but hopefully Kemp can do a lot of what he does. Though Kike can play SS and RF.

    Still think Astros win that deal as Marisnick is a good defensive player despite the inaccurate throws earlier in the season.
