Myers not as good of a prospect as Profar and Bundy are.

Bundy already having arm problems.

I'd rather have Myers over Bundy personally.

Sounds like they and he are just being a little overcautious. Can't blame 'em.

He won't steal bases like Trout or even Harper, but he has plus/plus power and projects to be an excellent defensive player. All this added up, he has superstar potential like that of Trout and Harper. Just not the same base stealing type potential.

And how do you know that Myers won't one day wind up in the Hall of Fame? Just curious since he is Baseball America's No. 1 overall prospect


No one knows, just like no one knows if Shields will be a Cy Young pitcher for the next couple of years.

And actually Trout has come back to Earth this year. He has yet to do anything special

Awfully, awfully hard to pick a pitching prospect over a hitting one, even a slightly inferior one.

I certainly don't hope Myers doesn't live up to the hype, but it might give me a little bit of a confidence booster in Dayton if he turns out to be right about Myers.

I don't profess to know anything absolutely, yoda. But go ahead and find me a few good baseball writers/analysts that will say they'd rather start a team tomorrow with Myers than with Trout or Harper. I'm not sure you'd find any.

You should go back and read what I already said. Myers has hitting potential that could rival Trout and possibly one day Harper. Again, he is not going to give you the stolen bases Trout will give you

What's that even supposed tp mean? Moore was trying to save his own hide when he dealt Myers. He was so desperate for quality pitching, he traded away the top prospect in baseball. He never thought Myers projected as a below average player, which seems to be what you're implying. Moore would have loved to have kept Myers, but felt he had know choice but to deal him away

Going back a few years, who would you have rather had if you could only pick one: Strasburg or Harper? I would choose Harper

The word at the time of the trade was that Dayton and the Royals weren't near as high on Myers as the rest of the league was. Was so unsure that he threw in our most ready pitching prospect (Odorizzi) and a former top pitching prospect (Monty).

What a déjà vu thread.

Funny — Myers was Minor League Player of the Year
