    This is my two cents (even though it's probably worth less than that):

    Like someone said, Moran will probably be no better than a fourth outfielder. His speed is nice, but he gets caught stealing a lot.

    Pelland will be no better than a third starter. If he doesn't learn the concept of throwing strikes, then he'll probably become a hard-throwing lefty in the pen.

    Dumatrait is going to be a big leaguer at some point, but he'll probably be middle-of-the-road a la Elizardo Ramirez.

    It sounds to me like Dumatrait will top out at a cup 'o joe if he doesn't make some progress on his mechanics. That consistency is often what separates big leaguers from the Lance Caracciolis.

    Yeah, that's what I meant. I didn't mean he'd be a Major Leaguer and stay that way for very long (although I don't mean to rule it out either).
