    I like his defense and the fact that he is close to being ready

    I also like that he is not Kyle Skipworth

    By all indications he has a very strong arm which is something I think we've been lacking behind the plate for a while. And from what I've read, his footwork etc. needs a little bit of work but he is expected to be an above average defensive catcher and that makes me happy.

    Also, he's a lefty hitter and I am naturally biased toward lefties.

    I know that. But I don't like him because his name is Kyle Skipworth and that isn't a baseball name.
    --------------------
    see, the main reason for my dislike of Skipworth has been lost since T+B's demise and it's a damn shame

    He wanted to distance himself from that shitty QB who accomplished nothing in Gainesville.

    Well, Skipworth wasn't thought of as a good defensive catcher. Although that's the one area he's actually improved a good deal.

    SIGH.

Yes, Smoak sucks, but he got Texas Cliff Lee. I do not hate high school prospects but I feel that we have taken high school players for the wrong reasons (positional need) and I think we need players right now who are closer to ready, given the state of our system. If we were a team like the Yankees, or the Rays, or the Rangers, I would be fine with taking the chance on a high school player and hoping he turns into something special. For a team in our situation, though, I don't think it is a wise decision. I only started saying told you so when he was sucking and Smoak was almost in the majors and my "told you so" was not so much in reference to his sucking but more that we should have drafted someone closer to ready. But instead, like everything on this board, it became "mk7 said he knew skipworth would never be good even though he was a high school catcher who he never saw play," even though that was not anywhere close to my original point.

    Quote Originally Posted by bell_virus.exe View Post

You don't draft a questionable 18 year old bat because you need him in the major leagues. That was my point then, and that was my point now. Under the BEST case scenario - if he hit at every level - he'd MAYBE be in the majors later this year, right? You're telling me we were drafting for July 2011 in June 2008?

    like, I get it, MK7 hates Skipworth was a fun meme for a long time, but I nothing him. I don't like him, I don't hate him. I don't think he was the right pick at the time for a number of reasons but I don't wish for his untimely death or anything.

    I just don't get why you like this guy. It has less to do with Skip than that.

    because he's a plus defender and he'll be able to step in when Buck is gone and hopefully bridge the gap to Realmuto/something more stable so we don't have to spend another $15-20 million in free agency on a below average catcher just because we need one

    didn't I already pretty much say that? or were you too busy doing a thing to read that post?

    I said I wasn't doing a thing. I'm trying to understand your reasoning, and it doesn't really make sense. Sorry.
