Ronny Paulino, this years McCann?

Postby biggamer3 » Sun Mar 18, 2007 9:30 pm

laugh all you want Paulino had better numbers in the minors than Mccan and Mccan didnt become a power hitter until the second year, and Paulino batted over 300 and hit 6 homers last year.
No doubt he will hit doubloe digits this year and more.

mark my words take paulino late!

Got him in the last round of a dynasty draft. I'm perfectly happy with him as my catcher considering his age and potential. He had a .300 average which is good enough, but if he can develop a little power I'd be ecstatic.

It's certainly a possibility that he breaks out.

I think Walker moving to 3B helps Ronny's value a lot.

Paulino may have had better numbers, but McCann was much much younger than Paulino. When Paulino was 21, he was in his second year at High-A. When McCann was 21, he split time between AA and the Majors.

Iannetta's a much better pick than Paulino.

Paulino should have a nice year, but he doesn't have Mccann's upside. McCann was much younger in the minors (he is also 3 years younger than Paulino) and he went straight from AA to the Majors. The Scouts also loved McCann since he was drafted.

However i really do like Paulino if you need someone to play catcher who won't kill your BA.

If C is a position that you have determined to tank during drafts then Paulino may be a good safety net. When I write "tank" I mean to purposely avoid while having a guy like Paulino in mind.

Paulino crawled up the ranks and last season was #9 as a professional. :-o 82% od his hits were singles. :-o :-o

In the minors he hit 70 home runs. 27 (39%) were in AA Altoona over three seasons. He hit 13 in 2005 (AAA Indianapolis). So that's 57% of his minor league homers since 2003. As he hits 26 this season maybe that power is coming but the high number of singles last season bothers me.

We'll see. Not a bad sleeper.

I don't think Iannetta is a secret anymore. At least not around these parts.

I consistently get him in the last round of the mocks I do. Sleeper to everyone but the cafe I guess.
