  1. No mention of the good-looking young man from BTF?

  3. AA is not the low minors, but I get the point, his overall record is thin considering the 100mph heat.

    Did you consider that he may have added 4-5 MPH since rookie ball? Or maybe he is 2-0 in every single count and therefore ends up taking 4-5 MPH, turning his 100mpher into a get me over FB?

    Fact will always be, you are not going to make it in MLB unless you have some command.

  5. One fact of note, not to be lost in his evaluation: He’s a french-Canadian who didn’t grow up with the sport. It seems that players ‘born on ice’ might take another couple of years of development, especially learning and appreciating the nuances of the game. It takes longer if the player doesn’t have an over-arching love for the game. We may not like the idea of players gifted for the game not really loving the sport, but it happens often in Baseball.

  6. OH Boy!!! there it goes again. I’m tired of those prejudices about being born on ice. Montreal get almost the same temperature as the mid-ouest all over the year. Valiquette has played baseball all his life since he was 7. He loves the sport just as any carabean or south american or just like australians and japanese who get snow and cold in their respective winters. Just if I was saying the americans don’t love baseball they only love winning games. See I’m wrong…

  7. Pocket Radar works great for coaching! Love it.

    At 120 foot of range on baseball it is not really intended for reading from back in the stands, good for coaching but maybe not fans. Works well from right behind the backstop at our high school games. Very accurate.
