    It wasn't just his HRs in A+ ball. And I'm not cherrypicking which ones I'm going to pay attention to and ignore in order to paint a sunnier picture. If you look at the sum total of his peripherals at any level, they fall into the okay category (at least over the last two seasons). To me he looks a bit Sal Romano-ish. So, if there was some MLB player I really wanted and Santillan could help get that player, I'd be willing to move him.
    I've got no qualms trading Santillan in a deal for an impact piece. My disagreement was with the notion that he is really a "meh" prospect who is mostly hype at this point and we should actively look to ship him out because his value will never be higher.

    Santillan is a AA prospect, you can't just scout the stat line and call it a day, there is a project-ability nature as well, and scouts seem to think is room for more growth with Tony. Romano was never viewed in the same prospect capacity as Santillan for reasons we are seeing now. Lack of a third pitch. Lack of an "out" pitch. Limited ceiling.

    Speaking of Sickels, I was disappointed to see SBNation is pulling the plug on Minor League Ball. Hopefully he finds a new home to keep writing.
