BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Whatever promise Bergeron showed as a 21-year-old center fielder in San Antonio is all but gone. Granted, the trade that unloaded Mark Grudzielanek and Carlos Perez to L.A. for a bushel of prospects would have been addition solely by subtraction. But Bergeron looked like a speedy fly-catcher with nice on-base skills at the time, a solid candidate for the starting center field and leadoff batter jobs. Heís gotten progressively worse since then, looking completely lost at the plate. Barring a huge turnaround, youíll likely never see his name in this book again.

Bergeronís the first of several fringe outfield prospects to be profiled in this chapter. If that doesnít entice you, feel free to skip ahead to the pitchersí section, where youíll find fifth starter/swingmen prospects aplenty. Have we mentioned the Exposí farm system sucks?
2002 The pain caused by the failings of much of the Exposí homegrown talent is intensified by the fact that for the team to succeed, they need a steady flow of young players who can contribute promptly upon arriving in the big leagues. Bergeron doesnít at all resemble the player he was a few years ago; his plate discipline has vanished, taking his OBP with it, and his confidence is shattered. Just 24, Bergeron still has time to resurrect his career, but he desperately needs a change of scenery.
2001 Do guys with weak arms rack up lots of assists because people are running on them, or because they can compensate for their shortcomings? Peter Bergeronís arm hasnít been the same since he hurt it a few years ago, but he racked up a major-league leading 15 assists as a center fielder, in part because of an instructional program instituted by coach Pete Mackanin. No good deed goes unpunished: Mackanin was fired after the season. While Milton Bradley is the better prospect, the Expos need Bergeronís on-base skills. He's far too young to be relegated to a fourth-outfielder role.
2000 The comparisons seesaw back and forth between Steve Finley and Brett Butler. A Mark Grace who can run and play the outfield works a little better because Bergeron has better power than Butler and better on-base skills than Finley. He started the year with shoulder problems, managing to irritate the organization over them. They said he couldnít go to the Pan Am Games if his shoulder was hurting. He said it was fine and played, then came back and said that it hurt. It turned out to be a slight rotator cuff tear that required surgery. Heís expected to be fully healthy before Opening Day, and heís penciled in to lead off and play center field if the arm is healed, left field if it isnít.
1999 Hereís why I said, ďnearly all.Ē Stolen in the Perez/Grudz dump, Bergeron is potentially the leadoff hitter the Expos desperately need in front of Vlad and Rondell. He should eventually post .400 OBAs in the majors, and his glovework is strong enough to push White to left (where he's less likely to hurt himself). Brett Butler comparisons are not out of line, although some prefer to use Steve Finley's name. ETA: mid-99.
1998 Any 20-year-old with that kind of batting eye is a prospect, even in the Sally League. By all accounts, a good defender who moves well both to his glove side and away from it. Youíll be able to determine whether or not the Dodgers think highly of him very quickly. Bears almost no resemblance to Redd Foxx.
