AIMING FOR THE STARS: Astros GM Jeff Luhnow said, "There's a lot of frustration among our fan base and as the new group in charge we recognize that frustration and the best thing we can do to make the Astros great again is build our own system, build our own players." He added the Astros are in the "position where we can deploy close" to $20M "worth of resources into signing international free agents and amateur players through the draft." Luhnow said the new CBA "will have the effect it was intended to have, which is the teams that are finishing last in baseball are going to have an opportunity to close the gap talent-wise with those teams that finish ahead and that's what it was intended to do" ("Behind The Dish With Keith Law," ESPN.com, 3/12).
