If you want me to spell it out for you, I have no problem declaring that I have more confidence in a 6'7" pitcher who dominates at the major college level than a high school kid from the middle of nowhere that had little to no success once he made his professional debut in rookie ball.
Could the high school kid eventually succeed? Sure. But I would err on the side of caution before I declare him a top prospect.
I thought we were talking about Szymanski. A college kid. In the end though, its all irrelevent and moot. No one ever gets these things right.
