CARDS I HAVE PLAYER POSITION REMARKS
5 John Fagan Cards Infield
Debuted for the 2001 Martinsville Astros, and played there again in 2002. In 2003, playing for Lexington, he led the Astros farm system in homers with 18. 2004 saw a slight increase in average, a larger increase in doubles, and a sharp decrease in homers while playing for Salem. Got a promotion to Corpus Christi in 2005, and played there again in '06, but the power was largely absent. Salem Avalanche logo
1 Kerri Fair Card Outfield

21st Round pick in the 2003 draft hit .185 at Tri-City that summer
15 Thomas Fairchild Cards Pitcher
Lexington Legends logo12th round pick out of Southern Maine in the June 2005 draft was third in strikeouts for the '05 ValleyCats. Really sparkled in 2006 for Lexington, going 10 - 3 with 1.66 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP, while being selected to start the Sally All-Star game.

4 Gordon Farmer Cards Pitcher
Osceola Astros 1985 - 1993 logo
Was actually 9 - 2 with a 2.95 ERA at Asheville in '89. Topped out, and crapped out, at Osceola two years later, though.
3 Jesus Farraez Cards Outfield
I don't understand: Guy hit .225 with Auburn in '96, then was PROMOTED to Quad City for '97, where he promptly hit .219. Given that, the Astros' brass then PROMOTED HIM AGAIN to Kissimmee for '98. Don't know what Farraez did there, but the development people must have woken up, cause he was never heard from again
