Any consideration for Carlos Correa or Miguel Sano?
Rage, don't you think it's fair to say that Myers could prove to be much worse than that? After all, he's going to have to actually play as an above-average regular and occasional all-star in the Majors first before he reaches, what is according to Parks, his ceiling. Right now though he's still just a prospect that could flame out entirely, even.
I can't help but think of the Jesus Montero trade last winter when such displeasure was voiced amongst fans and similar expectations were placed on a seemingly big league ready prospect because of a potentially potent bat. Obviously any judgments on Montero, whom hit in a hellhole and was 22, would be wildly premature and I'm not saying that Myers can't do better of course, but from an offensive tools standpoint Montero was rated by most if not all publications/prospect evaluators just as highly as Myers currently is. It's a formidable challenge to produce as an above-average regular, especially from the jump, no matter how high your hit/power tools are rated/projected and a .260/.298/.386 line or anything close to it from a corner outfielder wouldn't cut it.
Do you think Bird can stick at catcher?
Great stuff, nothing better than these kinds of notes on big time prospects. Am I reading it right that Profar's power will, at least, be average to a tick above? What do you think his power ceiling is? Thank you!
Mike Cameron maybe?
Any idea as to why the huge home/road splits for Sano? .184/.298/.417 in 29 games at home vs .291/.393/.598 34 games away.
I'd love to read a "What Scouts Are Saying" paragraph on Miguel Sano.
There's an article from September of 2002 by Baseball America about their Top 20 Prospects of the Eastern League (http://www.baseballamerica.com/online/minors/eltop2002.html, sub. is required) that mentions the following about Lee: "He's competitive, he's athletic and he has the potential for four outstanding pitches," an NL scout said. "If he keeps getting command, he might even have ace potential at the major league level. But sometimes he battles himself and his command. That should change with maturity."
Awesome article, a great read.
What kind of hit tool do you think Sano projects to have?
well said dodgerken222, i agree. whatever the reason for implementing this plus or minus feature on this site originally was doesn't matter anymore at this point as it has lent itself to abuse. there's too many posts that are legitimate that cannot be viewed just because a certain number of people think it doesn't belong in their group think tank. its unfair to the "offending" party and i suspect decreases their desire to even post.
