DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Simliar question about Greg Bird and the AFL. I read your eyewitness report. Yankees fans may look at him and see Mark Teixeira 2.0 ... that may be insane, but my question is that his stats seem to be better than a 45 OFP second division player?
(Pete from Detroit)
Bird is an interesting one. I think it is safe to say I would be on the lower end when it comes to valuing Bird. When I saw him at Double-A, it was a first-base only prospect with average bat speed and a swing that was more brauny than fast-twitched. I had concerns about the discipline against off-speed. However, this was my snapshot in that series, and I have talked to other scouts and BP members that had varying opinions on Bird. This is the most interesting aspect of player evaluation, as we all see players at different stages and are likely to have differing opinions. I have grown on Bird even since reading that report, but I still think he is more of a second division talent rather than a truly impact 1B.

Here's the report referenced: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=174 (Tucker Blair)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Greg Bird impressed in the AFL, but I've heard some less than glowing things from prospect experts. What do you see in his future?
(Alex from Anaheim)
I think Bird is going to struggle to hit top line pitching on a consistent basis. I think there's enough there with his pitch recognition and strike zone knowledge, and some natural bat to ball ability, for him to be a second division type or platoon player, but I wouldn't peg him as an everyday slugging first baseman. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Greg Bird's performance in the AFL changed our outlook for him?
(Jim from NY)
Not mine. I still view him as a guy with legit raw power but a passive approach and a swing that is more muscled than toolsy. Not a fast twitch swing and I don't love the bat speed. He's not athletic enough to play anywhere outside of 1B. I guess you could move him to the corner OF, but that doesn't mean a team should. Could be a second division type, but I don't envision anything more. (Tucker Blair)
2014-10-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)How high are you on Greg Bird?
(Alex from Anaheim)
What's the opposite of high? (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-09-10 12:00:00 (link to chat)Can Greg Bird be the next Yankees first baseman? His power grew as the season went on, so maybe the back was fully healed up. Strikes out a little too much, but he's got a great eye and some good tools, right?
(Mike from New York)
I am not as high on Bird as others. I have a report in the database waiting to be published, but here is a teaser from it:

"Bird is a first-base only type, but could show second-division skill. His approach is the best asset of his game and he could be a high OBP type, which will help play up the hit tool and power. He does not have impact tools, but can hold his own.
He just reached Double-A, and could use another year to see more advanced pitching. The approach is good, but he needs to work on keeping the swing more consistent and staying back on the slower secondary stuff." (Tucker Blair)
2014-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Greg Bird has shown a lot more power in Eastern League than he did in the Florida, but the average and on-base stats are lower (albeit in a small sample). What do you think of him as a prospect and what kind of player does he project to be at the next level? Thanks.
(Jax from Outworld)
I'm not a prospect guy, but Jeff Moore wrote that he thinks he ought to fall somewhere between platoon bat and regular. (R.J. Anderson)
