    Jose Guzman was no. 7 overal in 2005.
    That same year, Andy Marte was #1, Dallas McPherson was #4 and Casey Kotchman #5 along with countless other busts in the top 20.

    That's just one set of prospects. The big leagues are just an entirely different animal, and as much fun as it is to get excited about these guys, a guy is more likely to be a complete bust than even a one time all-star.

    Spot on Irish, have to be cautiously optimistic until he plays and succeeds up here. Maybe most of these guys on here weren't around to see and experience the hype. I'm an old timer compared to some on here.

    Right on Lasorda!!

    Problem is it puts the affiliate further away from home base and further away from my travel budget, lol.

    Nobody close. In Ogden, their is an 18 year old, Julian Leon, who is tearing the cover off the ball.

    Well, we're gonna need someone closer to the majors than that.

    Was having this crazy thought of trading Joc for a catching prospect+pitcher. Obviously easier said then done as it's very risky, not often done and getting a team to trade a young catcher would be extremely difficult.

    I just don't see what the Dodgers can do other then go all out for Russell or sign older guys who are meh for 1 year deals every year until something else happens

    I wanted so badly to trade Ethier to Boston for one of their minor league catchers (don't they have a couple?), but I guess that was a pipe dream.

    A few years ago they had Ryan Lavarnway, but he amounted to nothing. That was back when they had Salty (and he was young).

    That was the attitude they had though when they traded Konerko after he struggled coming up. If you recall, he was minor league player of the year, but they figured he was another Karim Garcia Billy Ashley AAA masher. 400+ major league HRs later and Jeff Shaw ends up being pennies for the dollars we paid to get him

    We're apparently moving affiliates.

    ABQ to OKC.
