Remember too that Guillon is two years younger, two inches taller, 20 pounds heavier and a lefty.
I love the outlooks of both pitchers, but can see why Guillon's a slightly higher consideration as a prospect.
Agree that those two are a close call. But I think that Jacob Johnson ought to be in the same conversation. He is the exact same age as Correa--one day older--and pitched all of last year at Dayton, a higher level. I understand that Correa has had some issues holding him back, so that's not a definitive argument. Nevertheless, Johnson has been relatively fast-tracked. He's a strapping guy (6-4, 215) with what's said to be great makeup. His numbers at Dayton were not overwhelming, but he pitched 129 innings there and actually had a winning record (8-7) on a very, very bad ballclub. And you can add as many verys as you wish.
Through age 19, having pitched most of his innings at A ball, Johnson has a minor-league K/9 of 6.1
Cliff Lee, pitching in the minors through the age of 24, had a K/9 of 6.0.
Roy Halladay, also pitching in the minors through the age of 24, had a K/9 of 5.9.
I'm sure there are other reasons for your definitive evaluation, such things as stuff and scouting reports. That's all good. Was just kinda wondering how you were able to dismiss someone else's opinion with such a sweeping, authoritative judgment.
