In response to VeniceSox's comment:
The farm system has no good bats to speak of and so they take a pitcher.... Ben is an idiot.
He is in HS and hits 94. Its impossible to tell right now if he will work out.
Spot on. To varying degrees, most of us can take a look at someone's pro career and make guesses on how he'll do this year, or maybe over a couple of years.
A very few of us have a good enough knowledge of our minor league system, and prospect development to opine on our prospects, past what they read in BA.
I'd guess, and I am not being mean, that none of us have the type of experience or knowledge to compare HS athletes. Even guys with 20 years of experience have issues with that.
That someone comes in to call Ball a waste of a pick, knowing literally -0- about him, makes the poster a complete idiot.
I preferred Meadows, but I am more than willing to admit my knowledge base on this is an absolute -0-.
