If you were to put scouting grades on Trout right now what would he get?
Eric A Longenhagen
10:58
I guess like 7 hit with 60 raw, 6 run (not an 8 runner anymore), 55 or 60 glove, 4 arm.
10:59
Maybe this is a guy you put a 65 on the raw power to show that it plays up due to all the contact he makes?

When I say the phrase "Worst offensive every-day player", who immediately pops into your head?
Eric A Longenhagen
11:12
Kozma, but that's literally the name that popped in, not the one I think it is.

Tony Wolters

Tony Wolters story.
So, for those of you that don't know, Wolters began his pro career as a shortstop.
11:16
And the system had a lot of potential SS types in the lower minors with Wolters, and it was clear by 2013 or so that Wolters was going to be too big for SS and Cleveland couldn't justify keeping him there and sacrifice the development of the other SSs like Ronny Rodriguez,
11:17
So he started catching and was obviously bad initially, but by mid-season the pitchers on the staff were psyched to throw to him.
It was odd that it only took that long.
Wolters supposedly has crazy good makeup
11:18
Vogt almost touched up a curveball for homer #2. Calhoun made a leaping catch at the wall.
