[quote]I am having a hard time finding the part where I said you said that? you think this is the first time hes played in 10 years? there is 0 chance he hasn't been training every single day and they know because that's their job they do it everyday and with someone who is 29 and fully developed ...

[quote]No you are still an idiot, Pujols was 19 when they made those PROJECTIONS and yes clearly he is better than hi projections and YES the scouts were off predicting what type of player a 19 YEAR OLD KID will become but when looking at at 29 YEAR OLD FULL GROWN MAN they have a pretty good idea of...

[quote]I mean there will be outliers in any statistical metric. [/quote] I agree with you. My point of posting that was just to show that scouts can be wrong. Some of the more irrational types are interpreting it that I'm comparing Tebow to Pujols. That's dumb. I haven't seen anyone say anything...

[quote]You're and Idiot that's when Pujols was 19....guess what 10 years of development didn't prove those ratings wrong they increased them because he developed as a player...Tebow is 29 and little room to develop[/quote] Wow. Another idiot. My only point I made was that scouts don't always get ...

[quote]Was Pujols 29 years old when those grades were made? You know what? He probably was. Never mind. [/quote] You're an idiot. In the link his projected future grades were slightly better. Hitting 40 Power 55 Speed 25 Arm 55 Fielding 50 Nor did I make the case that this translated ...

So just to kind of prove that scout ratings aren't the end all be all: Hitting 40 Power 50 Speed 25 Arm 50 Field 45 The player: Albert Pujols [link=(http://scouts.baseballhall.org/report?reportid=00108&playerid=pujolal01)]LINK[/link]...

re: Official Tim Tebow Workout Thread (Scout grades on page 6) - JasonMason
[quote]it also took him 7 years to get called up and he was a career .283 hitter in the minors, not bad for a guy like that. Tebow would be 36 years old if it took him that long [/quote] This is irrelevant to my point. I was using Carter as an example of being a player that excels in one attribute...

[quote] Is it really worth the time to spend on a guy that, at best, may be ready for the majors when he's 32 years old?[/quote] If he helps you even just for a few months or a season, hell yeah it's worth it. It's not like Tebow is going to command a whole lot of money if he legitimately is givi...

[quote]Im just calling out the idiots in here that think it's a given that he has what it takes to make it to MLB and no one should say anything to the contrary.[/quote] I haven't seen anyone make this argument.

[quote]And you are comical in thinking that there is any jealousy in me with Tebow. I think he's a schmuck and is clueless, but he has every right to go for it if it's his dream. It's annoying in the sense that it will be drooled over by ESPN because of guys like you, just like the Kaepernick thing ...

re: Official Tim Tebow Workout Thread (Scout grades on page 6) - JasonMason
[quote]when you grade out at 35 hit, 80 power doesn't matter a whole lot. It's a nice attribute to have because it will get someone to give him an shot, but he's got A LOT to work on as a hitter. as it stands now, his power is neutralized by the fact he can't hit [/quote] You're absolutely right...

[quote]Ohhhh, and you conveniently leave out that whopping fricking 70 in the hit tool huh? Maybe that has something to do with it? Hmmmmm. [/quote] This is irrelevant since no one is saying they expect tebow to be anything more than a fringe major league guy. The point was that a lot of major l...

[quote]Yeh, you dont know shite. Most major league players have a 40 or 2 in their grades.[/quote] I'd be willing to bet this is the case or close to it. Not every player is Mike Trout. Nobody is saying Tebow would be a perennial all star or mvp candidate. There are tons of players in the majors t...

re: Official Tim Tebow Workout Thread (Scout grades on page 6) - JasonMason
Grading out about average on a major league scale isn't bad at all. Someone saying they wouldn't be surprised if he played a few years in the big leagues isn't that big of a stretch. A lot of players get a year or two worth of service time in the majors or are "serviceable" defenders with below aver...
