On Smith's swing, Tanous said: "It's a traditional swing as far as his hands work very well. This is as 'handsy' a hitter as you're going to find. He can get his hands to the ball and get inside the ball as well as anybody I've seen as an amateur. He can actually be caught out front of some balls, be out ahead of the ball, and still barrel the baseball. It's an extremely smooth swing. His legs stay under him. His head never moves. It's really, really a flawless bat path once he gets to the ball."

Sandy's best pick...is Chad McDonald picking for the wrong team. Acer might be right as far as 11 versus, say 16, but they definitely chose for the high upside.

I know I am biased since this was my guy but he has the sixth tool in spades...

Diversity, makeup, hit tool, glove (don't move him), quick hands... Love it.


I'm shaking from the excitement.

Doesn't have the speed and is an asset at 1B. Not happening.

Yeah, his arm is something as well, but I think it'll be an asset at first as well.

Why the debate? DePo said 1b, is that not enough?

Not debating, i know he is going to play first... hopefully he rakes and flies up the farm but safe to say 3 years away

you think he starts at Brooklyn

I'd bet on GCL or Kingsport.

He almost definitely should start at Brooklyn. Kingsport would be pathetic...he's an advanced HSer. Nimmo made sense. Cecchini should have started at BK as well.
