PAGES: 1 | 2 In 2012, a 31-year-old who was selected in the 18th round of the 2003 draft became the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting catcher. At first, everyone was happy.

The front office seemed intent on hanging on to its top three prospects -- Joc Pederson, Corey Seager and Julio Urias -- and they did just that. While selling the farm wasn’t part of the plan, the organization didn’t fill any holes either. Let’s take a look at the ...
