I've been watching video on him the past few days to see what I might have missed with him...
Thoughts are as follows:

1. Switch-hitting lefty throwers are rare...sort of cool.
2. His right-handed swing is better than his left...which should be.
3. Swing needs refinement through the zone...contact points are off.
4. Will likely advance quickly to St Lucie then struggle...
5. Not a good fielder, he'll have to work on that...no arm to speak of and average to a bit above speed.

I like him a bit more, but I think he was drafted in the right round. He could be fun to watch develop...seems like a hard worker.

Quite a few of the "experts" think his fielding is underrated because of the way he runs. At least one felt he had a shot to stick in CF (obviously we took him as a LF so we didn't agree) but I think his fielding is better than you think.

Jared King ‏@leebs24 25s

First home pro game got rained out, but big thanks to Brooklyn Cyclones staff and the fans who came out in the rain!

The pundit reaction to when we picked him versus the reality of his career is sort of sadly hilarious (and a sobering reminder of how much of a crapshoot this all is).

The one guy calling for overhaul in teams' scouting departments because King fell to the 5th is probably the best example.
