"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
yeah what could have been :
1st Round: Aaron Crow
Supp. 1st : Tanner Scheppers
i understand that but im not saying that the Reds did a terrible thing and scheppers and crow are gonna win 5 cy youngs each... im simply saying their potential is much higher than leake and boxberger
Really? I'm not questioning you, but what does Hamilton really project to do down the road? I get that he's fast, but is that where all his potential lies?Well I would argue that Billy Hamilton's potential is much higher than Mike Leake's, Aaron Crow's or Tanner Scheppers too.
Basically a very raw guy but not so much in the athletic arena (there he is fabulous) but just baseball polish overall.
