Seems hardest to compare values of pitchers with position players--especially with prospects (they must pan out at different rates and pitchers can have such acute impacts( Toronto has a lot of pitchers in the top, no?).
I won't make a choice (other than to note that Baltimore's 10 is more than Toronto's 8 and every one of them is a roll of the dice, so more rolls is better).
My biggest hold up is that I still am working out Castro's value. I see him as more valuable than a similar player who fields brilliantly but is still learning to hit (hello, Iglesias) because I understand fielding to be more learnable than hitting. But I am still unsure how teachable Castro is.

This being said, I do think that Soriano would be a good fit for Baltimore, and wonder if we were to pick up around 95% of his salary we'd be able to get Matusz, Hunter, or Britton, each of whom are the types of one time top prospects who's teams are ready to give up on but are too young to just cut that Epstein seems to love, as well as a low level, high ceiling arm or fringe prospect.
