    Not exactly the best company. Mental midget, bust, dead.

    Excited? Not yet. But he's worth taking note of. There may be more there than some initially thought.

    - Old for level - CHECK!
    - Strikes out too much - CHECK!
    - Tweener defensive profile - CHECK!
    - Zero prospect pedigree - CHECK!

    Yep, get excited.

It may have been his decision to do it to make a push before Jose and EE declined. He may have been told he's to "go for it" by Beeston or he'd lose his job.

    Either way, it's not he's got some Dusty Baker track record behind him. There's nothing to suggest "he's probably going to decimate their farm system in the future".

    That K/BB ratio has to be a concern...

    I think when he added Price and Tulo in 2015 it was simply because he thought that team could win the World Series that year. And he wasn't wrong. That team was beastly, the best we've put on the field since 93. It came down to our 1-2 hitters not getting it done in the top of the 9th in Game 6. Should have scored and didn't.

    The start of this was the Marlins deal and who knows why that happened when it did. Has he ever explained the timing?

    Only the first two of those things are relevant. We have no idea how good (or how bad) his defense is, going off of dumn scouts who've seen him twice and basing their opinion on maybe three fielded balls tells us nothing. Prospect pedigree is stupid, where was Freddy Peralta's prospect pedigree? Rhys Hoskins'?

    He also has a prospect pedigree. He was ranked in the top ~160 by people before the draft and got a $300k bonus...

    23 isnít that old for starting a year in AA

    Who cares about a 25% k rare in 2018...

    Yawn

    He's not really even "old" for the level either, having turned 23 just a month or so ago.

    I remember when Brett Lawrie was supposed to be all bat and no glove and he turned out to be the exact opposite, almost immediately. We're talking about really young players, their profile and skills can change overnight. It's stupid to hold onto strict profiles for too long.

    Player profiles don't always translate from the minors to the majors. Look at Pillar. The only thing consistent is that you have to hit in the minors just to have a chance to stick in the show.
