I never took him seriously as a talent evaluator before and won't be in the future.
Well, to his defense he did say that the pitchers were almost knocking the bats out of their hands. It doesn't take a pro scout to see something like that.
With that said, I did remind him that basing an opinion off of a guy in one viewing is often a poor idea.
