Re: John Sickels on Devin Mesoraco
I agree with GIDP. Sound like to me that Sickels' main agenda was to defend his previous analysis. Kind of like saying yeah I was wrong, but it wasn't my fault. Granted, Devin had a pretty bad year last year, but a player doesn't turn from a terrible prospect to a good one in one season. There had to be signs there and scouts that saw them. I also find it unlikely that a player just completely revamps his swing in one season and suddenly becomes a very good hitter.
My gut feeling is there was not a lot of legwork that went into his original analysis and he is now seeing it blow up in his face. Just my opinion, and probably a very wrong one.
