DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)As you said, besides Greg Morhardt (who signed Trout), there were other young players who were profiled in the book that have since gone on to become scouts. Did any of them happen to tell you that they took an interest in scouting because their stories were included in what many people feel is the most comprehensive documented account of the profession?
(LoDoKid from Detroit)
No, I haven't had that compliment paid to me. And I doubt that it's affected any of them that way. But Charlie Kerfeld, now with the Phillies as a talent advisor, always liked his portrayal, brief as it was. A lot of players I've spoken to--like Tony Gwynn and Bip Roberts--thought it was great fun to read about themselves from a scouting perspective. (Kevin Kerrane)

2008-10-10 13:30:00Friday LCSWill, I have no idea how those pitch counts are so low except that maybe everyone was hacking early, afraid to get behind. What strikes me as kind of funny is that Charlie Kerfeld threw 51 pitches in two innings after Ryan threw 85 in nine. (Steven Goldman)
