By The Baseball Beginnings Guy

If only everyone in baseball kept as much detailed scouting information on the players as I do. Teddy Stankiewicz is going to be one of these guys who will prove my point. Now here’s a Texas guy that I saw once. Being a California guy, I had one crack to make my observations. That was in August. This is June. Back then, in my personal notes and the scouting cards full of wisdom, projections, grades and opinion (good luck peeking over my shoulder in the stands, I have eyes in the back of my head), I wrote this:
“Like! Strong solid build, arm works smooth full circle, solid RH strike thrower, fastball with late life. 90-91, run.” I put some other stuff in there, but I dreamed 5/6 on the fastball and I slapped an OFP on him that day, 52. So here he is, and I hope the Mets are as good at this guessing game as I am.
