I realized recently how much of the Astros pitching this season were older international
signees at bargain prices:
Framber, age 22, 10K,
Javier, 18, 10K,
Paredes, 18, 10K
International bonuses of that small amount of often harder to find so I wonder what other pieces he has uncovered that are on the way or have been traded recently.
Looks like ol Jeff found a way to exploit an undervalued resource and turn them into important major league parts.
