Astros Draft Budget 12th in Big Leagues

Baseball America has an article that lists what each team spent on the 2008 draft. The Astros were 12th in baseball spending $6,544,500 on 32 picks. This figures contrasts starkly with the $1,584,000 that the team spent in 2007.

Its good to finally see the Astros get serious about the draft and player development. If you look at most of the teams in the playoffs they are built around a group of homegrown players and savvy offseason/midseason moves. I like the direction the Astros are moving, but it will take a little while to see the fruit of their labor. Good blog btw, keep the updates coming.
