I'll drop all the Nationals players that are in the top 150
....................................... ....................................


89. Kory Casto - OF/3B Nationals - DOB: 12/08/81 - ETA: July 2007
Previous rankings: mid-2006 #137

.272/.379/.468, 20 HR, 80 RBI, 104/81 K/BB, 6 SB in 489 AB for Double-A Harrisburg
.302/.471/.434, 1 HR, 9 RBI, 12/17 K/BB, 0 SB in 53 AB for Peoria (AFL)

Casto, the only National in the top 100, doesn't offer the upside a team wants from its top prospect, but he's nearly ready now and he seems likely to have a career as a corner outfielder. With Ryan Zimmerman set to play the hot corner in Washington for a long time, Casto made the switch from third base to left field at the end of the June. He should possess enough range to be an average defender in time. Casto will have to be a platoon player initially. The left-handed hitter batted .303/.405/.541 against righties in Double-A last year. He was at .189 against lefties. Originally expected to contend for the starting job in left field this spring, he's now set to return to the minors. Three or four months in Triple-A would do him some good.

Ok, thanks. I thought you were advocating "dropping" them, and it made no sense. :)
