In response to moonslav59's comment:
I think the posters are under estimating De La Rosa.
Maybe we are just over estimating Barnes & Webster.
Leave it to you to be the voice of wit!
I do think Barnes and Webster are legit, and will be in Boston. I simply feel De La Rosa is more of a sure thing, with ace potential. I have only seen him pitch once, pre TJ surgery, and he was on numerous guns at 100 thru 6 innings. Wicked Slider, above average change. His fastball came in on right handers and he reminded me more than anyone else I have seen... of Strasburg. His control needs improving, but he has thrown less than 300 innings, and is only 23 years old.
His physical appearance, and fast ball look, dare I say, like Pedro.
I'm just saying I do not mean de la Rosa any disrespect by thinking more highly of Barnes & Webster. I like de la Rosa a lot, and most of what I know is second hand about all of these guys anyways. You have some first hand knowledge that I do not share, but I do remember watching Bowden in Portland a few times thinking "can't miss".
