On Tuesday afternoon, the Astros tweeted out the following quote from Jeff Luhnow. I'll leave it to your imagination to speculate as to what events and comments on the internet motivated the tweet.
Our strategy is simple, we want to develop the best young players in baseball, and we want to do it as quickly as possible. -GM Jeff Luhnow

In short order, the folks in Davenport, Iowa, home of the Astros' brand new Low A affiliate, retweeted the Astros' tweet and added a positive affirmation of their own.
And we are excited to help develop the future stars of the @astros ! #BanditsBaseball

I'm not one to meddle, but it seems the Astros and River Bandits may want to consider spending a special night together at Modern Woodmen Ballpark next weekend.
