    I've accepted that my adoption of Levon Washington probably isn't going to work out the way I wanted it to. Hopefully he can stay healthy and get it together.

    Absolutely nothing like Juan Pierre. Guy showed more than adequate pop in high school and college.

    They're both black though, so there's that.

    LOL Wrong troll
    in 355 career MILB ABs washington has 18 XBH in his entire lifetime, no one gives a shit about HS and Junior/Community College

    JP hit 11 in a 260 AB season, 34 in a 585 AB season (Washington would need to near double his career ABs to get to that number) 21 in a 456 AB season 20 in a 439 AB Season, literally every year was better then Washingtons entire pro career put together

    but nice Troll job, do some research the next time you post, you might not look like such a douchbag troll

    I love this guy.

    Seriously though, their game is really nothing alike.

    Pierre is a pure slap hitter who relies on a speed game. He had one home run in his minor league career and I'm fairly certain it was an inside the park home run to boot.

    Washington had four homers in his first full season, and doesn't have the same class of speed. Nor is he really a slap hitter.

    I applaud the effort, but actually looking at these guys makes it pretty obvious they're nothing alike. Pierre's MLB seasons compared to Washingtons three injury plagued 19-21 year old seasons not withstanding.

    Seems like the opinions on Paulino are all over the board - some guys LOVE him - others don't even rank him.

    I think some of it may depend on where they believe he fits long-term, if they move him from shortstop his value is slightly less than it would be.

    Didn't get a chance to see him in person yet, but in the race to shortstop between him, Lindor and Ronny Rodriguez he is behind a few levels so they'll get a crack to take over.

    According to the BA chat, they had Paulino in the 5 guys 'who just missed' and they were all written about in a subscriber article. Also, later in the chat someone asked who is most likely to move into the top 100 who missed this year and Paulino was ranked there. I think the opinions are based on what we already know: Paulino doesn't have 'wow' physical dimensions, but he has raked in his time in pro ball- he just doesn't have the physical projectability of a Profar, for example. So there is intrigue there, and I think if he continues to rake as he moves up he will rocket up the prospect rankings. Im cautious on him myself, the pop looked good especially for his (supposed) age but I wonder what that ceiling is and if he can stay in the middle of the diamond. Will be a fun year to watch with him.

    Won't know that until rosters are released shortly before their seasons begin in June.

    He'll end up back in Arizona or with MV.

    Kind of random, but one of the office workers at the Mahoning Valley Scrappers sent Dan Patrick an email asking if they could get the entire office off on Thursday or Friday for the opening round games. Dan Patrick called up the office manager, and they all got Friday off. :chuckles:

    Jose Ramirez jumping up a couple levels to Akron this year is something to keep an eye on. As is Aguilar as he hits a level where his slow bat probably won't play as well.
