Yeah, I had high hopes for Taylor as well, but I always had doubts about his game at the highest level. He was a big recruit coming out of HS, went to Stanford and under performed, got drafted and pretty much dominated, and then he got to AAA and fell on his face.

Hard to believe Alderson squeezed 2 top prospects for Dickey when many thought he couldnt.
Thole and Buck both suck so that is a wash. Guess there is a PTBN prospect on both sides included in the deal as well.
Thole was a package deal with Dickey- he's his personal catcher lol. I'm just glad the Mets didn't get Gose too. That would have been awful.

Baseball America released the Phillies top 10 prospects today: http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...3/2614445.html
