(Dean-retired, schimpf- might be moving to AAA soon, ochinko- AA, Gibbs- AA).
I' won't guarantee it because I haven't done the research, but I'd be willing to bet these kids were full time baseball players their whole life. In most parts of the country that means they are playing baseball year round their entire lives. These kids are decent athletes that are as polished as they come at the college level. Chad played a little baseball between football and spring practice. To say they are more natural baseball players is far from the truth. The true athletes in baseball (for the most part) never see a college field. We can all agree that LSU has the best program in the country over the past 2 decades. They had 8 players in the bigs last year. Not exactly a huge number. The point is, CHad's natural talent is far superior to any one of these four guys and his ceiling is way higher. To say he doesn't have AA talent?!?!?!?
