Who is Left from the Purpura Era?

I wrote a post yesterday about the new players that Jeff Luhnow has brought into the system since he moved in the General Manager's office last December.  Needless to say, the face of the Houston organization is changing at a rapid pace.  Thinking about the changes caused me to wonder how many players remain affiliated with the Astros from before September 7, 2007, when this blog was launched.  

Here are the eight survivors from the Purpura era:

Jose Altuve, 2B, signed 9/27/2006
Luis Alvarez, C, signed 9/26/2006
Brandon Barnes, OF, drafted 2005
Ernesto Genoves, C, signed 7/2/2007
David Martinez, RHP, signed 3/3/2005
Bud Norris, RHP, drafted 2006
Juri Perez, RHP, signed 5/15/2007
Carlos Quevedo, RHP, signed 7/3/2006
