As an Astros fan, I know I shouldn't say much, but...This.

One of the most misunderstood aspects of the Luhnow rebuild was the tanking. It didn't really work as well as people think. Only one of the three #1 picks worked out. That was Correa. The Astros still could have gotten top talent without pissing off the fan base royally from 2012-2014. Remember he inherited Altuve & Keuchal too.

Luhnow picked over Appel over Kris Bryant. And in 2014, this was infuriating. It still kinda is despite the World Series win.
