Choosing between the Jay and the Giant based on their projected statistics over the long haul.
As much as it pains me to say it, Matt Collins did an excellent job of introducing the 2015 Tale of the Tape series yesterday. I’m here with another installment, and a bit of a wrinkle. While last year’s (and yesterday’s) focused on the upcoming season, this year we’re bringing you the same template with an eye toward the future (and from a dynasty perspective). This doesn’t necessarily mean that the players in question will be prospects (as today’s are), but that they’re younger players that require more projection than an established regular. Of course, this also means that the conclusions drawn are a bit shakier, as projecting further out is a bit more hazardous. That doesn’t mean you can’t hold me to it though, when I’m inevitably, invariably, wrong. To kick off the dynasty portion of this series, let us look into the futures Blue Jays’ recent draftee Max Pentecost and Giants’ backstop Andrew Susac, who checked in at 24 and 25 on the Top 50 Catchers list, respectively.
