And that, to me, is one of the greatest things about baseball. Until a prospect starts to play, it is impossible to say what he will be become.

Mark Buehrle was a 38th round pick, for crying out loud! But he was such a great competitor and such a great craftsman that he became a top tier pitcher who has thrown a no-hitter and a perfect game, has started and won an All-Star game and who was a stalwart starting pitcher for a World Champion.

Not bad for a 38th round pick. And not bad scouting and development from the White Sox, either.
