ask any college coach, high school coach, the numbers are not too far off.

Longoria showed wayyyyyyy more power than Danks.

This is why I hate talking about prospects. Everyone thinks everyone is going to be this all star player. Does not matter what sport. Derek Rose is going to be MJ, and Jordan Danks Griffey Jr. The guy was DISAPPOINTING at the collegiate level. He was not first day talent. He showed no power and hit for a much weaker average than expected. He is not a terrible prospect, but he is vastly over rated here. He is not a 5 tool prospect, he isn't a super stud, and odds are he won't be in anyones top 100 rankings come years start.
