if u care his last name is salome he got drafted in this year's draft
Better then manny at what? Also funny how he is supposedly better then manny at the same time, but no other scout saw it enough to make him anything more then a 5th round pick. Not to mention he is pretty damn small at 5'7". In any case you have no credit since you can call Mauer a flop w/ nothing to back it up.
Other things you have to consider is how weak the competition was that he faced. The majority of competition up north is not as good due to the short amount of time they can play per year. He had a very small sample size to, only 49 at bats.
edited to say: I did a search and didn't find anything saying Salome was better, the coach said Salome is the best hitter he has coached "since" Manny.
