Nice little bat to ball 2B prospect with a good approach. Will need to hit all the way up to retain prospect status which is a familiar archetype for Cardinals prospects and they often succeed in some way.

Will these prospect lists be finished by the start of next offseason?
Eric A Longenhagen

Kiss my ass.
Colt Holt

Rick ankiel with 80 command!
Eric A Longenhagen
2:45
Also would have been fun.
Anthony

Is Adames a SS in the long-term?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:46
I think so, especially on that club.
Sterling Malory Chris Archer
2:46
I thought we told you never to mention Phillipe Aumonts name ever again...
Eric A Longenhagen
2:47
There was a three week stretch at Triple-A where he was 94-98 with sink, a 70 curveball and 45 control and he was totally unhittable.
And it never returned

Are grades of the speed tool objective, i.e. derived from a stopwatch, or are they as subjective like the other tools?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:48
Mostly objective w/ the watch but detail added (underway, baserunning) more subective
Randy Savage
2:48
Who are you picking in the Superbowl?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:49
New England.
If they neutralized Antonio Brown they're likely to do the same to Julio with two weeks of prep, right?

What do you think Brinson becomes in the majors?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:49
20/20 guy who plays a solid CF
Dumpster Fiers
2:50
Shed Long end up in your top 100?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:50
He's a 50 FV for me and a handful of those guys are going to make the back of the list. So there's a chance. But I'm not going to shove him on there just to be different.
Colby
2:50
How similar are Keibert Ruiz and Francisco Mejia?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:51
Mejia far more explosive.

Kopech is getting a lot of love without much experience. Is it entirely based on his fastball speed?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:51
and slider, and body and on-field makeup.
Clit Commander
2:51
Braxton garrett, tyler kolek, dererk deitrich, adam conley enough for Quintana?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:52
If I'm CHW, take out Kolek, plug in Brian Anderson and we've got a deal.
Joe
2:52
How good would Sadaharu Oh have been in the majors?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:53
I have no idea but it would mean Nigel is wearing a different jersey at the end of Spinal Tap
Nate
2:53
Lot's of hype for Leody Taveras. What type of upside does he have?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:53
Just on upside? 70 hitter who is a 60 in CF.
Nate
2:53
Does Luis Urias' stature limit his upside? He seems to have a special bat besides his power.
Eric A Longenhagen
2:54
It limits the kind of future power you can project. If he were 6-2, 170 and hitting like this he'd be one of the best prospects in baseball.
Notgraphs
2:55
Have you written Joey Gallo off? What does his future look like?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:55
No way, can't write off an athlete like that with 80 raw. Consider how long it took Nellie Cruz and Chris Davis to tap into their power.
J
2:56
Do you just average out the 5 tools for a prospect's grade or do you weight some more than others?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:56
No, that way of doing things in antiquated.
Eric

I was surprised to not see Wladimir Galindo 3B/CHC on your Cubs list. Do you have any thoughts on him?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:56
He's on there toward the bottom.
2:57
Nobody thinks he stay at 3B.
That I spoke with, anyway.

How much do you mentally regress stats from hitting friendly/pitching friendly leagues if you haven't seen the player yet?
