    I understand. Call it a 3rd round pick if you will. But based on what I've heard about him, I wouldn't put him in the top 15 just yet.

    I must say, I like his delivery. Very relaxed and smooth.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Anyone after #6 in the Top 15 (or Top 20 for that matter) is completely interchangeable. And that includes Constante. He has every bit as much reason to be in there as Langfield, Y-Rod, Rahier, Reynoso, et al
    Go BLUE!!!

    That's fair, and I have no qualms with that. I just meant to speak for myself. What I see is a young lefty with questionable upside who hasn't thrown a professional pitch, and meanwhile he's being compared to guys with similar upside that have already produced well in the States. There's nothing wrong with putting him in the top 15, but I'm in no rush to do so.

    I don't know why I get a reliever vibe from him. I think his finish reminds me of Arredondo or something. Anyway, you gotta love his size for a starter.
