If you are saying that Vidal is a better baseball player today than Duran and/or Barnhart I can see your point. However, if you are saying that Vidal is a better prospect hands down than both, I simply can't agree.
Duran has the pedigree of a huge bonus and he was young for his league and showed flashes of being a top 10 prospect.
Barnhart put up solid offensive stats for a catcher and won the entire minor league gold glove behind the dish.
Both are very valuable prospects.
I happened to like what David Vidal did last year, but I'm not willing to say he is a much better prospect than Barnhart or Duran.
