Not arguing with you.. (I did peek and see who you voted for).
I guess I just consider the young C grade prospects to be such longshots, I'm giving Soto a few bonus points for advancing as far as he did, despite his bad year.
I figure at this point, upside of a poor man's Carmelo's Martinez is worth as much as some of the guys remaining.
I do hope I'm wrong though and all these guys ahead of him on the RZ list make it to the majors though. But you raise a good point, Soto is just one more bad year from being released.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
