I was told Lerud was a real prospect,and when I saw him I went back to the guy who told me that and asked him if he was the same person we had talked about ! I don’t like to dis any young guy,but he was bad. Ryan Doumit without the offense !

I would think the guy that has a shot to be “the next” Hanson or Polanco would have been higher.

He was behind three other pitchers (Sampson, Oliver, and Holmes).

People like offense so I would guess clicking on the offensive players more often is just natural.
