Fangraphs: Scouting the Sally chat w/Mike Newmann

Select quotes: "Of the group, I've seen Wheeler and May so I'll stick to those two. I prefer Wheeler to may by a large margin." "Well, Belt is teaching prospect followers that age-versus-level does matter regardless of the numbers. However, he really does need 600 plate appearances or the chance to go somewhere else. I can see Huff playing because he's being paid well, but Schierholtz? 28 with a .750 OPS is a find 4th outfielder, but no way he's a starter on a first division ball club." On Brown vs. Trout vs. Gose: "Trout's all-around offensive production will trump the other two. In many leagues, OBP is overlooked as a core component of so many categories. If Trout is a .300/.380 guy with some power and a ton of steals, that's a fantastic player. I'm leery of Brown due to his being a college guy crushing the Cal. My being enamored with Gose is no secret, but his strikeout totals will drag down his average/OBP numbers lessening his value." "Q: From most top prospect lists, I get the feeling that Gary Brown is one of the more controversial players. Why, do you think that is? Mike Newman: College players dominate the California League. He more or less did what he was supposed to do. Francisco Peguero did the same thing and was a meh prospect. Should Gary Brown repeat in double-A, I'll buy into his production much more."
