Trout was a HS kid who came out of a cold weather State. He'd be closer to the Orioles' Hall than Gonzales who is a college player who played his HS ball in Arizona.
They have tons more data on Gonzales.
Also is anyone suggesting Gonzales might slip into the 20's?
Question about Nick Gonzales — the guy has raked throughout his college career, and put up absolute monster stats for the abbreviated 2020 season. But I hear that scouts are discounting his offensive production because he’s supposedly been playing against lesser competition compared to some of the other players who are considered top prospects. I remember reading an article a while back that talked about why Mike Trout wasn’t drafted until the #25 pick in 2009, and the main reason for that seemed to be that the scouts at the time didn’t trust his offensive numbers because he was putting them up against lesser competition. I’m not trying to compare Gonzales to Trout, but wondering how scouts and the baseball intelligentsia can truly judge a player’s abilities when the level of competition varies so widely across different leagues and age groups. If they can screw up so badly with a Mike Trout level talent might they also be misreading Gonzales’ future as well?
Charged with three more charges. I take it back. I have some questions because he clearly is still acting nutty. I believe in rehabilitation, and i think there no organization better equipped for it in the NFL than the ravens. But the activity has to stop first before you can ever think about rehabilitation.
