Monster power projection, could be middle of the order type of power bat. Floor is 4A type of hitter who doesn't make enough contact in the bigs to be rostered.
Hey

Okay, do you personally think Barreto's a longterm SS?

No

What do you make of Alberto Tirado's close to the season?
Eric A Longenhagen

Touching 100 isn't all that uncommon anymore but he did it, and it is objectively good. Slider flashes but is inconsistent.

Is Cal Quantrill a top 100 prospect?
Eric A Longenhagen
3:09
Ah man, that's tough. Was legit in the 1-1 discussion heading into the spring but he didn't throw. I think he might be, man. I've seen him up to 95 or 96 with a plus changeup.

What is your take on Juan Soto in the Nats organization? Hit like gangbusters in the GCL and briefly in the NYPL....and he's only 17.
Eric A Longenhagen
3:11
Reports are mixed. Will flash big pull power but the swing can get long, nobody is sure if he's a good athlete or not. He's definitely got some tools, or at least the potential to have them.
3:12
He might be one of those international guys who was low on lists because he wasn't as physically developed as his peers but the body came late and he's actually a dude.

Do you think the Angels reached on Matt Thaiss?
Eric A Longenhagen
3:12
Yes

Eric A Longenhagen
3:12
(shrugs) He won't be on mine.

Thoughts on norge ruiz, who wasn't on your J2 list?
Eric A Longenhagen

Relief for me.

What do you consider the ceiling on Eloy Jimenez?
Eric A Longenhagen
3:14
Middle of the order, 30+ homer run monster.

have you seen any players have similar seasons to Dillon Cozens and make the necessary adjustments to become an above average ML regular?
Eric A Longenhagen
3:17
Lots of guys who were this "type" of player have hit enough (or just have enough power that it doesn't matter how much they hit) to be a good big leaguer. Chris Davis, Chris Carter, Mark Reynolds...
3:18
Of course, there are also Steven Moyas and Jack Custs...Cozens is a tough eval.

Carson Fulmer, what did we learn from this year??? Seems to me... not much.
Eric A Longenhagen
3:19
Didn't do anything to cement belief in him as a potential starter. In fact I'd argue the contrary.

Ok, so you think the Angels reached by selecting Thaiss in the 1st round. Considering that most experts feel the same way, how do the Angels justify the pick? It makes no sense, especially after reaching for Taylor Ward in the previous draft.
Eric A Longenhagen
3:21
They'd probably cite his college performance.

Please talk about Aaron Judge
Eric A Longenhagen

It would probably be more illuminating to talk about Yankees' fans impatience with Aaron Judge.

Aaron Judge. Big hitter with a big swing taking time to adjust or something else?

The Verdict

Tell me something good about Aaron Judge so I do not think he is the next Kila Kahue or something. Kid has adjusted at every level right
Apple Pie

With Judge doing so poorly does Frazier get a shot?
how long do you think it'll take Judge to find his strike zone ? He's had similar issues everytimr
Eric A Longenhagen
3:25
And there are more. Not all of those are bad questions, but please know I was getting similar questions about Alex Bregman for weeks after his initial callup.
Aaron Judge
3:26
Can I get traded to a fan base that understands "sample size?"
