As do I.
That is why I don't have much faith in prospects whose value is almost entirely defined by their scouting reports. Until they have a solid amount of legit professional results under their belts, I don't have much faith in any of them.
I don't really start to take prospects seriously until they hit double-A. That is the level that usually separates the suspects from the prospects, and (back to the original discussion) that is why I am higher on Corcino and Cingrani than I am on Stephenson and Travieso. They've got both the solid scouting reports and the numbers to back them up. Sure, those scouting reports might not be as glowing as Stephenson and Travieso's scouting reports, but their results more than make up for the difference IMO.
