Im thinking about guys like Daniel Lyons, Bill Rhinhart, Whiting and etc... If they are 24-25 years old, how can we say they are good prospects if they will be like in the majors in their late 20's? I still dont know why we always have slowly promoted Luke Montz when his hitting and defence are above average for a catcher? I know slowly developping them is good but there is limits.

There's alot of career minor leaguers in our system right now - it's a result of the poor management during the Expo days and will disappate as the years go on.

Qft. I think, we will be soon having alot of competition even in Rookie ball. I don't know how will we be able to play everyone in short seaon teams with the DSL top prospects, 2008 draft prospects and with some of recent draftees that aren't doing as good as expected. The future is looking bright and the management definately knows what they are doing right now.

Yep. The Expos completely stripped our minor league system. That is why guys like Casto were so highly touted when on a team with a farm sysytem in the 10-15 range he would be a guy they looked to slowly progress into maybe a pinch hitter or 4th/5th out fielder, not a future star, like what we thought he would turn out to be :(

I never considered Casto to be a future star prospect, we were just so high on him because we rarely had a player that climbed through the system to win a starting role. He just seemed like an upgrade to our outfield that we had at the time.
