I agree with you on that, and that's why I was for the trade. I Know they know better than me. I just don't think we should bash Calle until he really shows his value. In my book he's still a top level prospect until he proves otherwise. And like I said I will be so relived if the otherwise happens.
That's the LGW way though. Everybody is a stud until he's not in the organization anymore. We're like Red Sox fans. "Johnny Damon is the kind of guy you build a franchise around"....*Damon goes to Yankees*..."f*** that bum. I never liked him".
Jarnkrok was/is a good prospect. Any revisionist attempt to paint him as some washout is demonstrably false. I don't care if people liked the trade or didn't, doesn't matter now. But the extra step of trying to justify it post hoc by claiming that Jarnkrok wasn't any good is bulls***.

“The stuff he can do, he is as good as anybody in terms of hand-eye coordination and skill in tight places. It’s just a matter of time until he starts putting up big numbers." - Jiri Fischer
GMRwings: "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage. For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada. There's some US states where it's 16 as well.
Get off the high horse. Not like she was 10."
"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
