Here is what Rany Jazayerli said about Harris in 2003:
"When I got to the Brendan Harris write-up and looked at his numbers carefully, a strange sensation came over me. (Go ahead, Derek--make an Aussie crack; it's good to get it out of your system.) I checked the numbers, and lo and behold...well, look it up yourself:
Brendan Harris, 2002 = Albert Pujols, 2000
There are some differences--notably that Harris was a classification higher than Pujols--but the raw numbers are eerily similar. Harris is the biggest sleeper prospect in the game, and I was compelled to move him into our Top 20."
Sickels liked him a lot, too. Here is what he said in his 2005 book (grade B):
". . . He'll need to find a middle ground with his plate discipline, and I think he will. Harris can play third base and second base without killing you, but is probably best at third. He's not a gold glove, but he has a decent arm, doesn't make stupid mistakes, and is fundamentally sound. Harris is basically Joe Randa."
