How did every team misjudge Kwan and Madrigal so badly?

Are those sprint speeds peak?
Average?
Averages at certain point(s) in a sprint (5 steps in, peak, and finish line)?

Not that it matters for the point of the discussion, but just curious to know.

Not sure, any "sabes nerds" out there with a full explanation, lol?   Greg's words, not mine, I think they're just groovy.

Scouting misjudged madrigals potential to add power (or the sox to develope it). 

Eric longenhagen ultimately thought madrigal would be a high on base guy who would eventually hit 15 bombs but that never happened. 

Cleveland is also pretty good in developing some power. Their hitters still have below average power but their game is basically taking high contact no power guys and then optimizing their launch angle and batspeed so they hit like 10-15 homers (basically turning 30 grade power guys into 40 to 45s).

The sox on the other hand don't change that much usually , their hitters essentially stay what they are in college.

Even if Madrigal didn’t develop any more power than Kwan, the guy they had last May would be a seriously disruptive player especially if he became a stolen base threat.

The Sox seriously misjudged his ability to stay healthy. Considering he was already banged up in more than one way when drafted, that’s the mistake.
