Ben and Sam talk to Kevin Goldstein about the amateur draft, his scouting assignments, the Astros' system, and more. Harry breaks down the PITCHf/x debuts of two promising Astros arms.
Here at Baseball Prospectus, we don't hold grudges. So, when the Astros hired
Mike Fast, no one took it out on their prospect rankings. Even when they hired Kevin Goldstein, and a real opportunity to get back at the poachers was presented, things remained cordial.
Now our old friends work for a club that doesn't get much love. But they did trot out a pair of pitchers in the last couple weeks that
Jason Parks covered in his 2013 rankings. With a little bit of PITCHf/x data in hand, let's talk about and Paul Clemens . We'll give them a little love, tough love if required, but nothing like the love Mike Foltynewicz shows Gio Gonzalez his hand. Read the full article... Another piece on the Astros, but a good one, at least.
By now you've read too many articles about Jeff Luhnow and his plans for the Astros to keep track of them all. Even so, Richard Justice's
latest at MLB.com brings some new information to the table. Here's a snippet: Read the full article... Baseball Prospectus visits some old friends in the Lone Star state

Ben and Sam talk to Kevin Goldstein about his life after leaving Baseball Prospectus to work for the Houston Astros, what he's working on, and what he's learned about how baseball teams work. Also, what he's drinking.

Amazon.com gives us good evidence of just what kind of trendsetter Kevin Goldstein really is.
Earlier this week, I got it in my mind that I finally needed to buy a real, actual (nice) stopwatch. Remembering that our very own
Kevin Goldstein has a very strong opinion about what the best stopwatch is, I went searching for a tweet I remembered him sending out once where he voiced that opinion (I know, I know, I was shocked to see Kevin voice an opinion too!).
Here's that tweet I found, complete with the proper stopwatch make and model:

Looking for a replacement for your injured third baseman? Michael looks at plenty of hot-corner options this week, especially in Playing Pepper.
Jason Collette and Paul Sporer covered in BP’s Towers of Power Fantasy Hour podcast this week, four front-line third-base qualifiers— , Evan Longoria , Mat Gamel , and Kevin Youkilis —hit the DL this past week, leaving fantasy owners scrambling at an already-thin position. While many of the replacement players are marginal, sometimes a warm body is all you need to keep your fantasy squad afloat until more help arrives via an early-season callup. I’ll examine a few of those hot corner replacement options in this week’s column. Pablo Sandoval
