You know, when guys like Callis and Sickels toss around comps like Tulo and Evan Longoria, that is all I need to hear. He'll be gone no later than Top 5, and will probably command a $6-$8mm signing bonus. arguably best positional player on this year's class.....

Got it together in his 3rd game.... 2 for 3 with a hr and a bb.

I hope he learns a little better plate discipline this year...only 15 walks last year.

10 games in and struggling...

35AB / .229/.341/.371 / 1HR / 3BB/9K

...seems to be struggling early but I'm not overly suprised as I thought he was a little overrated with his stick anyway...seems to be more of a project than i would want from a college player in the top 5.

I picked up a Team USA Lars Anderson/Grant Green dual auto card recently, so that makes me a member of the Grant Green bandwagon :-b

He's picked it up a little but still strikes out too much and doesn't walk quite enough...

One thing you might be missing out on here J is the small sample size that Green has under his belt this year. Even with the somewhat lower numbers than one would expect of a Top 3 pick, he is still well positioned to be the first off the board after Strasburg....but still worth keeping an eye on at this point...

Not really missing out on anything....he's yet to impress me at any point in his college career...this is just more of the same from where I'm standing. And I'm not saying he will or won't be a top 3 pick, I just personally wouldn't do it.
