Apart from saying, "they pay 22-23 players to play catch with the 2-3 real prospects" I couldn't have said it better myself.
My old organization still talks about my record of playing for the same team (roughly AA level) for 3 straight years and catching 22 different pitchers, 8 of whom made the majors (albeit, the Japanese majors) and have a career total of over 200 wins (again, Japanese major league wins.) Then again, very few teams keep track of "Games Caught and Won."
