astros aren't really trying to out marlin the marlins either. luhnow took over a team that had next to nothing left in the system that was available in the next two or three years and a ****** major league team with a few expensive guys on it who weren't very good.

they didn't throw 100+ million dollars at free agents and trade them less than a year later. luhnow sold off ****** carlos lee and sent away the overpaid wandy rodriguez, agreeing to pay salary to get something back.

i'm really, really, really interested in seeing what the astros do. it's like what most roster nerds want; they're going to essentially build a team from scratch. in 2015 or 2016, it's going to be lots of fun tracing the origin of that team back to today.
