Default BP on Reed.

They are listing their top prospects in Baseball this week.

Quote:
Jeremy Reed
Age 23
5-Year EqAs: .278, .285, .288, .294, .293
5-Year WARP: 1.4, 1.6, 1.9, 2.1, 2.1


Noteworthy Comparables: Tony Gwynn, Terry Francona, Don Mattingly

PECOTA thinks he's the best outfield prospect in baseball. The dude hit .400 for a couple of months, and he does everything you'd expect to suggest that the batting average is for real, since he runs well and rarely strikes out. He's not a huge power guy, but his secondary average should be good enough to make him a real asset, even at a corner position. I think he's top-five material, perhaps top three.

It cheers me up to think we possibly have a Gwynn-caliber player in AAA

Not sure Francona belongs in the same sentence as Gwynn and Mattingly.....but it sure does sound promising.

I thought that was a little odd too.

How great would it be if Reed could be a lock for the #2 spot for the next 10 years? If he meets the expectations that are being thrust upon him (and yes, that's a BIG IF), then he will become EXACTLY what the Sox need: high average, high OBP, left-handed, decent speed left fielder. OK, I'll stop drooling now...

Not a bad list for Reed to be included with I think.

Just wait until Garland, Rauch, Crede, Olivo, Borchard and Reed all reach their ceilings.

Perhaps it's the spectrum of possible results when he's called up. You know, if he played for any other team with a proven great manager, he'd be Tony Gwynn material. But, with an unproven question mark as his teacher at the major league level, he could be Terry Francona.

Makes sense to me.

1. Kind of.

2. He's a non-roster invitee.

LOL!

As for 1), he's a better option defensively than Rowand.

That's probably an accurate comparison. Gwynn was a lot skinnier and faster in the early 80s. Reed will probably hit more homers though, because well...everybody hits more homers now than they did 20 years ago. I see reed putting up mid-90s Gwynn numbers. Take his 97 season in which he won the batting title and put up relatively great power numbers (.372 17 hr). Or even 2000 Darin Erstad (.355 25 hr). It'll probably take him 3 or 4 years to fine his power stroke, but it will come.

GOOD GOD! Gwynn is a first-ballot-HOF'er! WHy do you people do this?

I'm printing this thread so when these same people complain that Reed only hit .275 in his first season, I can show them how unrealistic and rediculous they are.
