Haha no Tyler Colvin.

I'd bet if the Cubs took the guy drafted behind him Peavy to the Cubs would be an old story.

This is why Rankings stink: Soto. I do not believe he was regarded as a top prospect.

Actually both Baseball America, and Baseball Prospectus had Soto as a top 100 prospect in all of baseball. Baseball Prospectus had Soto ranked #37, while Baseball America had him ranked at #47.

Steve Stone had mentioned that Wellington Castillo is very highly looked upon by other leagues (good rookie catchers are hard to come by) and wouldn't be surprised to see him get packaged in a deal, especially if the Peavy talks take off again as the Cubs will have Soto for awhile. I did see him play in Peoria.... and you could see his potential even in A ball.

Wellington has always been a major league ready defensive catcher, that needed to work on his hitting. Last season he made very nice strides at the plate. He's still only 21 years old, and has alot of room to grow. As a prospect, Castillo has very solid value. And you're right, plenty of potential. ..... The Cubs must be doing something right lately with how they are developing catchers. Castillo isn't even ranked as the Cubs best defensive catcher(Luis Flores).

Top 100? They also had Pie #13 once. Throw crap against the wall and see if it sticks.

I'm just giving you the facts. You claimed Soto wasn't highly ranked, when both of the main scouting organizations had him as a top 50 prospect in all of baseball. Do they get it wrong sometimes? Sure. But since we can't get out and see all of these prospects play, these scouting organizations are our only real eyes into the minor leagues. ..... Sometimes when a player doesn't pan out, it has to do with the lack of development done by his organization. In fairness to Pie, he hasn't had a real shot at the major league level.
