|I used to like fringy grinders and polished arms with advanced change-ups (Milone, Ynoa), but nowadays I am more inclined to take dudes on a case-by-case basis. For example, I was really impressed with Raimel Tapia this week, and that would never be a profile I would have fallen for in the past. I guess young middle infielders with some polish (Wade, Luis Guillorme, Carpio) would be the closest I have to a type right now. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|

|I don't know how new this is, but I love telling Luis Guillorme stories, so I'll wrap up with this. I may or may not have been watching a World Baseball Classic qualifier at work. Guillorme was playing shortstop for Spain. They were playing on a field in Panama which perhaps didn't have the greatest groundskeeping in the world. He gets a little chopper over the mound and instead of charging on it, backs up to the outfield grass for an in-between hop. He gets a weird one, snags it hip high, and a split second later the ball is in the second baseman's glove and gets the force by a hair. It doesn't seem like much, but he did everything you wouldn't teach, and it didn't matter. He's never flashy, but you never see the strings when he plays. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|

Also, a more generic question. How many views do you want of a guy before you are comfortable making a scouting judgment? Thank you|

|Haven't gotten up to Dunedin just yet. Still working full-time until around April in addition to my BPro commitments so I only get to fields a few days a week until the busy season ends down here.
As for your second question, it's a good one. There are certain things you can tell right away. I saw Mets SS prospect Luis Guillorme take two ground balls and knew he was a plus fielder. One round of BP can tell me a lot about a hitter's swing. In-game at-bats, however, are another entity altogether. I need to see 5-10 at-bats before I can really get a feel for what a hitter can do, and preferably against different types of pitchers. If they're all against the same thing (all against FB/CH righties, for example), it may take more. (Jeff Moore)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
