Thanks guys, I ended up taking Drabek and I'm looking to deal for another pick to grab Westmoreland. My minor league system is now Neftali Feliz, Pedro Alvarez, Chris Marerro, Michael Main, Kyle Drabek

I don't think his ceiling is near where the other two are on the list. His defense at SS is what might put him close to the majors but i dont think his bat will be special enough to make him fantasy special.


maybe not this year, but a 19 year old that holds his own at AA does have a special bat, even if it does somewhat lack in the power dept. I agree the hype train may be out of control, but I also think that the out of control hype train is now causing him to be overrated (if that makes sense)

From KLaw's last chat.

Klaw Chat

Steve (Chicago) A. Escobar Or S. Castro
Klaw (1:55 PM) Castro.

Brian (Madison) Not liking Escobar's bat?
Klaw (1:57 PM) He doesn't walk and isn't going to hit for power. Castro's bat is special.


He also goes on to say that if Castro isn't the best SS prospect, he's near the top.

Drabek, Kelly, Friedrich, Westmoreland and Castro but they are all relatively close.

I go...

Castro - due to position mainly but also youth and projection
Westmoreland - good at everything but some questions on health
Drabek - health concerns but pedigree and tools outshine them, i see 2 to 3 ace like seasons at most, like his daddy
Friedrich - I like him be he lacks raw stuff and I'm still somewhat afraid of COL pitchers
Kelly - Just don't think he'll develop the stuff to be great fantasy-wise

Castro may never hit for big power but he already has a very good eye and does not K very much and he will steal a lot bases....he has the frame where he will put on size...maybe he can be a Jose Reyes type down the road.
Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.
