BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Triple-A has evolved into a level jam-packed with trigenarians waiting for somebody to get hurt so they can have a week of well-paid vacation in the major leagues. Blue-chip prospects might see a brief cameo, but frequently skip the rung entirely. Swann now has 2,383 Triple-A at-bats, or nearly enough to earn the title “Oriole.” His bat has sufficient juice that he can keep touring America’s small cities as long as he can tolerate the unrelenting fireworks promotions. There are worse jobs.
1999 A former Grade C prospect in the Braves’ chain, where he had as much opportunity for advancement as Bill Clinton does at NOW. He does everything 90% as well as Luis Gonzalez, but that 10% difference is worth probably 10 million dollars over a career. He’s in the wrong organization if he’s hoping for major league time; he’d need a collision between the Tigers’ best 7 outfielders, and at last check the rules only allowed for three.
1997 Good fourth outfielder. Plays solid defense, hits the ball fairly well, draws a few walks. He’ll have to catch a break to have a major league career at this point. The musical chairs game that determines backup outfielders in baseball has precious little to do with ability and a hell of a lot to do with luck and perception. Pedro needs a little luck.
1996  Hmmm. A .280 hitter with some power, a little speed, walks a fair amount. Not the most unique set of talents. With Atlanta's crowded outfield situation, he's unlikely to get a shot.
