    No, that doesn't make any sense. Mike Trout isn't a pitcher

    Cameron has been panned by everyone else who is paid to watch prospects, and the results bear that out so far.

    Quintana has the 7th highest WAR of any pitcher in the majors over the last 4 years, is still young, and is signed to a cheap deal for the next 4 years.

    At a certain point you have to realize someone is either grossly ill informed, or just a troll, so it's best to stop discussing it.

    Would you trade Bregman, Reed and your precious Musgrove for Quintana?

    I mean... he cited pitcher record, ERA, and dropped in "eye test" for good measure.

    Because if you disagree with someone then that means you're trolling or they are wrong. Great analysis, you should teach that to children

    No way on Bregman. I would certainly include Reed and Musgrove.

    My point was just that if its going to be just a bat, does it have to be our highest ranked OF prospect? Why not Tucker or Moran?

    I don't know what that means, was that meant to be a racial epithet?

    Never forget that the "eye test" issued by a message board commenter always trumps the observations of scouts and front-office executives.

    Its the same thing with Osweiler, he's actually had some decent games. Can anyone tell when he just looks so bad?

    If you spent anytime in the game threads last year with some of the absolutely ridiculous comments made, you'd know exactly what it means. And, it has nothing to do with race.

    Cameron is not the Astros' top-rated outfield prospect.

    You're objectively miles away from rational thought; not only are you vastly overvaluing Daz Cameron but incredibly underrating Jose Quintana.

    I'm just quoting this so @Patman87 can see it again. This post should end the "argument."

    Depends on which list you look at, some have him before Tucker, others have it the other way, I saw a list that had Fisher before both of them so its subjective

    Kyle Tucker is our highest ranked OF prospect.

    Shocking, since you have no clue what you are talking about, that you also have no clue what you are watching.
