DateQuestionAnswer
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you gone back to look at high-ceiling toolsy prospects you've liked and figured out why they did or didn't approach their ceilings? Are there patterns to find, beyond just general makeup?
(justarobert from Santa Clara)
Yes, I have. I try to go back and look at my reports/rankings pretty regularly to see what I can learn from my own successes and mistakes. I think that's an important part of the process in becoming good in this field. If you're not willing to look at what you did right/wrong, how are you going to improve or even just keep doing some things well?

Early in my career, I undervalued the hit tool some. I'd see a tooled up kid that had everything you'd want with the only questions centering on the hitting ability, and it wouldn't phase me enough. A perfect example is Cale Iorg...I was convinced until the bitter end he would figure it out. He had average to above-average raw power, plus run, plus-plus glove, plus arm; tons of tools, but the hit was never there and I didn't put enough stock in that problem. Over time I looked back at my mistakes enough that I learned from that and I'm far more cautious about shoving guys with questionable hit tools. (Mark Anderson)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Cale Iorg hit a dinger in a ST game the other day. You don't suppose? His glove and range is said to be Everett-like. How much would a guy like him HAVE to hit, to stick?
(singledigit from San Diego, Ca)
He'd have to be able to put up an OBP higher than the weight of a Fielder to be named later to be allowed to be a big-league infield regular, and I'd put the odds of that happening only slightly higher than my shot at being elected Pope by the College of Cardinals. (Christina Kahrl)
