  1. Sergio is a right-hander. Also, I think Pablo Sandoval would have been a better choice for graduate. Say, where do we get stats like that on minor league pitchers regarding their speed and percentage of pitches?

    Also, Bumgarner’s stats are skewed by 3 horrible starts to begin his pro career because the Giants had him change his mechanics. He went back to his old mechanics after that and had, like, a 0.90 ERA after that.

    About Wendell Fairley, he started the season with injury problems but must have ended it well because Baseball America put him on their Top 20 Prospect list for that league. I think Henry Sosa would have been a better pick for tumbler.

    For the 2008 draft, I’m not sure why you didn’t pick Buster Posey instead, he hit really well, the only problem was defense, which all the scouts said he has the ability to pick up.

    About Tanner, I like him but 2.94 BB/9 is good but not what I would call excellent. Low 2’s and below I would call excellent.

  2. Yes, yes, Pablo Sandoval!

  3. Thanks for commenting guys… and for catching the typo on Romo’s handedness. The speed and percentage numbers are available right here on FanGraphs by clicking the players’ names in bold in the articles or by searching their player pages.

    As for not picking Posey, I like to write about players that get less press… We have been inundated with articles about Posey lately but who has written about Kieschnick? Don’t worry, Posey will get his due before long – likely when I begin to do reviews on the players in the Hawaii Winter Baseball league and Arizona Fall League.

    The reason I went with Romo rather than Sandoval was because I wrote a whole entry on Sandoval the week (or so) prior at our sister site RotoGraphs:
