The Origins of the Luhnow-stros

While referring to the Farmstros database yesterday, I tweeted that 84 of the 250 players currently in the Astros' organization had joined the system under Jeff Luhnow's watch(after December 7, 2011).  I had a chance a chance to do a more thorough analysis of the spreadsheet and found that the actual number of Luhnow-stros at the moment is 88.  (I missed the two Rule 5 additions and a few international signings.)

Here is a breakdown of the 88:
