I had never even thought of the two of them in a comparison, but your article caused me to do some further research into Puig, and I drew the conclusions and comparisons all on my own. And it made me appreciate Polanco even more than I already had. Just listened to Curt Schilling talking about Puig’s inability to be selective, and pitchers should not even try to get him out by throwing strikes.

It is nice to see so many potential “bats”. Too early to say what Allie is going to be but he has put a good effort in so far. Looking forward to Polanco, Hansen, Bell , etc. I would love to see Lambo get a chance in right but that is Tabta’s job to lose. Snider didn’t do anything to hold it. I would prefer to see a platoon in left at this point.

I read the comments in the dashboard, and don’t usually look over to the name column.

Why say that a player is only limited to being like one other player?

If I get a player comp, I’ll report it. But I don’t see much value in them and I don’t seek them out. I’d rather give an estimate of what a player can do and let you draw your own conclusions.

I hope he’s trolling…

Do you really not do them, or just prefer to shy away be a use if the expectations they create, good or bad? That said, for those who haven’t seen him play, including me, it would be nice to have one regarding Polanco… We looking at a Dominic Brown type? Is he really that skinny, I thought we’d heard that he’d finally added weight to his frame and that’s where the power was coming from. I was thinking he was closer to 225 than 175.

If that is the definition of “fallen flat on his face”, then I hope Gerrit Cole falls flat on his face too.

Second, are you suggesting that it’s my fault Allie is struggling? The irony of your comments is that when Allie was crushing low-A, I kept pointing to the strikeouts and saying he could struggle in higher levels. And then it was “you need to believe in him”. Now it’s “you’re adding too much pressure”.

I’m going to do my job, which is analyzing the minor league system. I’m not going to make an exception for anyone when doing that. If I compromise what I do, then the quality of my site goes down, and that hurts my career. I have no plans of doing that out of the hopes that if I don’t provide any analysis on one player, he will have a better career. That’s kind of ridiculous.
