An unnamed scout, on Delmon Young:
I’ll tell you what. This kid’s hitting instincts are nowhere near
what we all thought he’d be. He’s so undisciplined, it’s unbelievable.
He’s still got speed. He’s still got a good arm. He still has skills.
He’s just not a real good hitter.
Based on the above quote and Patrick Reusse’s recent column in the Minneapolis Star Tribune it looks like people are finally starting to think beyond their five-year-old copies of Baseball America when evaluating Young’s potential.
And all it took was 1,591 plate appearances of undisciplined, powerless, .288/.322/.401 hitting to get the point across.
