If there is one thing that I have noticed that seems to exist on this board and on most fan boards, it is a love affair almost obsession for prospects. I can't help but wonder what is at the heart of this matter. I am curious if others think that fans love prospects more than they merit the love. Are prospects the baseball equivalent of the backup quarterback in football? Is it because we haven't learned what to dislike about them, or that they make, by baseball standards, relatively little money, is it because they don't seem to have big egos, or their future seems limitless or is it just based upon our dislike of the veteran who we think is blocking them? Would love to know what people think.
