Yes it's very optimistic, however, if the numbers are comparable at the same levels, then it's fair to compare. If you look at the A Adv numbers, it was Wrights 3rd year in the majors and Morels 2nd year.

I have not seen Morel play in person and I've never seen Wright play at the minor league level... But there aren't that many players that hit 16 hr and steal 25 bases as a 3B!
