Thoughts from a scout


Happened to sit next to a Cardinals scout at a AA game last night...a Cardinals scout who's a Reds fan from SW Ohio.  Assorted outtakes from our conversation:

 

On Yonder Alfonso: On his best day, he's not quite Jonny Gomes defensively

On Juan Francisco: I'd love to see him get his shot.  I think he'd hit 25 HR in the bigs.  'Course, he'd also hit .220...

On which Reds prospects he was most excited about: The two catchers definitely.  Mesoraco looks amazing.

On Cardinals wunderkind Shelby Miller: He's the real deal.  Could probably help the Cards right now.

On my surprise/annoyance on how well Lance Berkman has worked out for STL: He practically begged the Cards to sign him.  He insisted he was ready to play the outfield.  (why does this never happen for the Reds?)

 

Take all this for what it's worth of course; thought it was interesting...
