Sometimes you get questions that make you chuckle. I got one the other day where I almost spit out my beverage: what holes do the Astros need to fill to be competitive in 2013? Well, where do you want me to start? It probably is easier to answer the question of how many positions the Astros feel comfortable with in 2013. I'm assuming the answer is somewhere between few to none.
So, rather than attack the answer that way, we will look at the positions one by one and look at the current answers and the club's long range answers as well. In some cases, the answers are in the organization, but they might not be ready by 2013. In other cases, they simply don't have an answer.
