I am currently working on the Washington Nationals Top 20 PRE-SEASON prospect list review (to be followed by the Yankees and the Reds). Taking a look at every player, the following discussion question came to mind:

TRUE OR FALSE: Lucas Giolito is generally over-rated as a prospect. By this I mean, he is often regarded as the top right-handed pitching prospect in baseball, but that's a mistake. He is one of the best, but he is not THE best.
