We want Kiley back. Shit I'd maybe prefer Dan at this point.

How valid are the comparisons between J.P. Crawford and Francisco Lindor? Are their similar minor league totals a coincidence, or can you actually see J.P. having similar success? I'm asking mostly about the offensive capabilities.
Eric A Longenhagen
2:19
I think Lindor > Crawford. Lindor is a generational talent in my opinion.

Approximately where would Luis Robert be in your top 100?

Either in the 50 or 55 FV tier, spoke with scouts who spoke to both.

Curious, what "software" do you use for scouting? A tablet w stylus? pen & paper? some kind of special software for tracking players w notes so you can move them around?
Eric A Longenhagen

I use a notebook but have considered going digital because it's more efficient for me to find that information later than it is to dig through my notes, but I think taking notes by hand and then plugging them in to my own database helps with recall so (shrugs)

Haven't been there yet, SD's first minor league game is...tomorrow I think.

Why are scouts worried that Triston McKenzie is too "skinny?" He's still a teenager! Also, Chris Sale.
Eric A Longenhagen
2:23
Because he's really, really, superlatively skinny. And Sale is unique, not someone you point to as precedent. I think McKenzie will be fine.

Yes

My friend who follows amateur baseball much more than I is saying that Brice Turang is a name to know for the 2018 draft. What do you know about him?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:28
Based on my assessment from last summer at Area Codes, similar archetype of player to a lot of really good shortstop prospects: Tools in a vacuum are just okay, but at shortstop they look really good.
2:29
Okay everyone, that's all for me.
See you here next week?
