    Wellington Castillo put up a .744 ops as a 21 yr old catcher at AA. Im not sure a slightly better or worse version of him is all that valuable.

    If you're going to pigeon forge, you'll pass the stadium when you get off the interstate. I have no idea why they say they play in Kodak. It's actually not even 15 minutes away if traffic is clear
