This just might be the best compliment we have ever gotten, so many thanks... the reality is that it is all a crapshoot. As a Dodger fan, recent memory has shown us that prospecting is always gambling.
For the Dodgers, they just made horrific mistakes. Giving up on Konerko. Giving up on Pedro Martinez. Giving chances to Billy Ashley. Karim Garcia. Jose Offerman. Darren Driefort.
Of the four, Beltre, Ordonez, Heilman, and Barmes, Heilman is the most likely bust, in my opinion.
The other three guys will be solid... Barmes in particular.
