My point is if he was truly talented he would have been selected by one of the 29 teams or at least not have been left unprotected by KC. I never said he could not be a below average left fielder in 3 years. The original question dealt with whom to hold onto.....Trevor Crowe or Lubanski. I merely pointed out that Lubanski's present team and the other 29 teams must not think he is very talented because he was not selected in the rule 5 draft or protected prior to it. Crowe is still held as a prospect by Cleveland at least at this point. 2008 will be a very important year for Crowe who has to keep improving lest he become the next Lubanski(A former high 1st rounder).....unwanted by his own team and not thought highly enough to be given a shot by the other 29 teams. That is why I still would pick Crowe over Lubanski. By the way nobody but the most optimistic prognosticators thought Josh Hamilton would make Cincy's roster out of spring training let alone make an impact in the big leagues with his bat. The reason Hamilton was selected was because a team felt he had a lot of potential despite not playing above A-ball for four years. Again this lack of potential is why Lubanski was left unprotected and not drafted.
