No one was objecting when people called him a bust and overrated

No one called him a bust, but overrated... well some people want to send him directly to Cooperstown so how could he not be overrated?? :wink:

Saying a kid is overrated is sometimes used as a sly way of knocking a prospect but with little accountability

I understand if you saying something like - You are overrating the prospect because you think he is the 2nd coming of Willie Mays

But if you are saying in general that he is an overrated prospect then you are in opposition to the general consensus

Kelenic has been generally rated in the 50-70 prospect range ... if you think he is overrated than you disagree with that assessment and therefore you will be very wrong if he ends up being a top 20 prospect in baseball

Most of the chatter about his being overrated was a direct response to his being compared favorably to Curtis Granderson in the context of that being a lower-end outcome.

I think it was LTK that made that comp and he said it because they have a similar skill set

Which I think is reasonable - I don’t think he was saying that Grandy was some easily attainable lower end projection for Kelenic

That was my interpretation as well.

Speed, power, defensively solid, high BB, high K.

I think it's an apt comparison.

A couple of multi-hit games by Cano would go a long way toward muting that.

As if there is some doubt about this happening.

Not at all. Some people here have been talking about him like he’s the next Trout since he was drafted. He may end up being very good or he may not. But he’s played what, 15 games above rookie ball..? May get a little better idea of what sort of player he can be after he’s actually played a full season.

I understand the disappointment of giving up a potentially good young player but he’s gone and he’s not coming back folks. At some point you’ll have to move on. There’s especially no point in having this eat you up inside before he actually turns into anything.

Kelenic has been on the DL for awhile now

Anyone know what happened?

Did BVW do a Gillooly on him?
