    RT @Ken_Rosenthal: Astros will get Singleton, Cosart and 2 players to be named from #Phillies for Pence. PTBN not major prospects.

    Singleton and Cosart are legit prospects. Singleton top 30, Cosart one of the top pitchers.

    Casort and Singleton are 2 of philly's top 5 prospects for sure.... may even be numbers 2 and 3 . With Pence gone i think we need to turn our efforts into trading Bourn.. we should be able to get just as much for him ... maybe the Braves will give us one of their top pitching prospects for him.

    Two others already explained it, but Singleton and Cosart ARE the two major prospects. The two prospects to be announced later are what the "not major prospects" portion is referring to.

    I'd rather get high A ball prospects than Wallace and Happ retreads.

    Time for Ed to create a bidding war between Cincy and ATL for Bourn.

    These guys seem a little better than Happ and Wallace to me.

    But they better damn well pan out. Hunter was young enough that he could still be good when we come out of the cellar in a few years.
