@Y2Jimmy0 @Y2Jimmy, do you expect them to play him a year in the DSL like they did with Robert? I hope this isn't the case. 

I hope not

The only time Longenhagen has seen Cespedes play, he went 3-18 in the Can-AM League and had a long swing 

Is that the last time anyone saw him play?

FWIW, he has Gavin Sheets as a 40 and Cespedes as a 35+ meaning that Cespedes would slot somewhere between him and number 32 Jake Burger in the Sox System. That just seems ridiculous to me

Honestly, Cespedes’s Cuban stats aren’t anything to get excited about and the last time anyone saw him play he struggled. Any reports or rankings on him at this point is complete guess work. I don’t think he’s below Sheets, but I do think people need to curb their expectations with him. This is not Robert 2.0

I keep seeing different spellings of his first name. Is it Yoelkis or Yolqui or is Yolqui a nickname for Yoelkis?

If that rating is accurate...no reason to get overly excited about him.  He'll have to play himself on to the team.  Can't assume he will be a fast riser in the system.

Only to a degree. Otherwise  anyone could hit major league pitching.

There are natural mechanisms that make a major league hitter just a freak of nature.  They usually have amazing hand-eye coordination and outstanding vision.  You can't teach that.  Now their swing mechanics however can be changed and massaged over time.

Spanish does not have a letter K. The QU would be original.

Hopefully we hear news soon about Colas (if he is signing somewhere or waiting).
