That's because it's written by Phil Rogers. They only charge for expert's opinions.

Actually, that was pretty well written, and I'm one of the first to bash Phil.

I guess since the Cubs weren't involved he was able to stay objective...

I don't see how Borchard was rushed, unless you think he needed another year at Birmingham instead of being moved to Charlotte in '02. He was just an AAAA player; raked at AAA every time, but just couldn't hit major league quality pitching.

Borchard is only 29. He hasn't been given enough time to prove that he can hit major league pitching.

You know that you can't judge these deals until all players have been retired for atleast 5 years.

Some people have no patience.

When, exactly, did Borchard rake at AAA?

He was a AA player.

Yeah I'm wrong about saying "every time", but he put up .266/.333/.495 in '04 to convince the Sox to call him up and .355/.452/.711 in '07 to convince the Marlins to call him up.

This is what you guys are looking at?

Just in case you didn't notice: that's the projected 2012 lineup within our organization.

We have had some bad prospects. Joe Borchard our top prospect three years in a row? Ouch.

Well, when he was a prospect, he wasn't a bad one; not like Lance Broadway or Kyle McCulloch. He just didn't pan out.

He really thinks that PK will still be on our team in 2012? I love Paulie, but he looked like an old man last season. I cannot imagine what he will be like in 2012. Maybe an Edgar Martinez type player? I just don't see it.

Once again, this is who is projected to be at each position from inside the organization. It's kind of hard to project who the designated hitter will be 3 years from now from outside the organization.
