Re: MLB Network Special Top 50 Prospects tonight
Scouts just drool over Ackley. Holding your own in the upper minors during your first year as a pro is impressive, but isn't he just a lesser Dustin Pedroia? That's nothing to dismiss, but above the guy who best profiles as the next Randy Johnson?
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
