Guys with his talent are too hard to predict; Zimmerman was a little easier, with less possible result deviation IMO.
in what sense?
zimmerman had 3 years of college ball,
a year in the minors and a small stint in the majors.
the next year he was starting at 3rd for the nationals.
Gordon had 2 years of college ball,
a full year in the minors,
and is starting this year with KC.
pretty similar situations, in my mind.
you could even say Gordon had the better minor league stats.
to me, Gordon is the prospect least-likely to fail,
he's going to be very solid.
