Sure there are some differences in the players, but I still think that's the closest comp out of anyone who's come out of the Reds system in the last 10-15 years.
You're the one who loves to bring up numbers when defending your arguments, so please, defend them.
I did defend them. Edwin had 30 HR potential. Rodriguez doesn't. Edwin had execution problems with his strong defensive tools. Rodriguez doesn't have strong defensive tools.
They aren't really similar. Edwin was a Top 100 prospect for a reason. Rodriguez, even after hitting .317 in the US from rookie ball to AAA hasn't been able to sniff a Reds Top 10 placement.
