How are they doing compared to other teams?

Not that great. In fact, they have the worst winning percentage in Major League Baseball.

they suck at signing draft picks too?

More from Goff on 44th rd pick Blake Ford (via Twitter):

Blake Ford was helping out at a Little League camp in Lufkin today when he found out the Astros had drafted him. Ford also said he had bought tickets to tonight's game, long before the Draft process, and when he told the Astros he would be there, they told him if he wanted to sign tonight, "Let's get it done."

By the way, how much fun would this be? I mean, you're a relatively unheralded guy who may or may not be drafted and suddenly you find yourself drafted by what amounts to your hometown team. You're going to the game as a fan with tickets that you have bought yourself and you end up signed as a player in the organization. That seems pretty damn cool.

Hell, back in the day, you could buy a ticket, show up at the ballpark, and end up playing in the game that day. I mean, back in like the 1870's-kinda back in the day.

I wonder if Ford got his tickets upgraded after he signed, or at least got a free hot dog or something.

More signings today per Stephen Goff (via Twitter):

Link 1: Astros sign 7 more Draft picks today: OF Brandon Meredith (6th round), OF Jarvis Reynolds (7th), LHP Scott Zuloaga (16th)

Link 2: SS James Howick (21st), 2B Ruben Sosa (23rd), RHP James Propst (38th) and LHP James Hardoin (47th). They've now signed 25 of their 50 picks.

Link 3: Astros also announce the signing of two non-drafted FAs today: LHP Steven Dennison (Wheaton College) and LHP Paris Shewey (Washington St.).

Link 4: In addition to the 25 signed Draft picks, the Astros have now signed five non-drafted free agents.

I'll update the chart here shortly!

In the end, my dissolution with the game of baseball will not be a result of any loss of love for the game, rather from the realization that I can no longer bear the anger its supposed stewards cause to be built up in my soul. -Lee (01/08/2013)

As of today, the Astros have signed 25 of their 50 draft pick, in addition to 5 non-drafted free agents. This includes 10 of the team's first 13 picks. [Round 1 pick Springer and Round 3 pick Armstrong are currently unable to sign, and won't be able to do so until their teams are eliminated from tournament play].

Looks like 9th round pick RHP Jonas Dufek has signed.  From Levine (via Twitter):

Astros have now signed all of their top 13 draft picks except the two (Springer, Armstrong) still alive in NCAAs. -Z

I sure the hell hope some of you gents saw Springer's defense in the 8th inning last night. 2 great plays.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Looks like they might have a legit backup plan for when Bora$ comes calling.
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Healthy would be good.  His ability to track the ball was upper tier.  He had no real business catching either ball, especially with a strained hammy.

Another NDFA signing by the Astros (Campbell via Twitter):

Kentucky IF/OF Neiko Johnson has signed free-agent contract with #Astros and will report to Tri-City Valley Cats.
