As far as "over-hyping" I'll have to take your word for it as I don't have regular baseball conversations with many Cubs fans. But what baseball fan base doesn't over-hype their prospects? Nothing to get upset about really.
The other day Len Casper said the cubs NEVER over hype their prospects. Uh Len, the cubs wrote the book on the subject. Yes, most organizations hype their prospects, but they do it to make trades. The cubs do it, to do it. Hendry is scared to death to part with his 'untouchables'. For me, I WOULD be surprised if Castro did turn out to be a solid regular for many years to come.
