Anyways, I dont get how this turned into me defending Brown. I just dont get where the Peguero hype came from. If he even makes it in the big leagues, his ceiling is a 4th-5th OF.

Ok. I'm not saying he's going to be a super star... obviously not. But you have no idea how good he could potentially be. Time will tell.

I was hoping beyond hope that Peguero might turn the corner and become an every day OF, because he definitely has the raw tools, but he just hasn't been able to harness those tools on a consistent enough basis to warrant serious consideration as a real prospect. I just think that if it does happen for him (which is a big if), it will be somewhere else.

As much as it pains me to say this, 99 is probably right about FPs ceiling.

I wish the Giants would change to a camera angle directly behind home plate. Its easier to see balls and strikes, and you can see the movement and break of the pitches. I like the angle the Cardinals have.
Angel Pagan CF, Marco Scutaro DH, Pablo Sandoval 3B, Buster Posey C, Hunter Pence RF, Brandon Belt 1B, Gregor Blanco LF, Nick Noonan 2B, Brandon Crawford SS, (Barry Zito P)

I don't think a week in the bigs is really a fair judgement. He was only up because of Pagan's injured hammy.

Definitely a small MLB sample size, but his minor league numbers are average at best (with the exception of the hot start this year). BTW, I hope I'm wrong and you're right as I really like the kid.

It would be great for all Giants fans if Peguero would turn out to be a productive everyday OF for this team. I dont see it happening but anything is possible I suppose. As you say, other than this year the numbers have just been average in the minors.

would have like to see Pill but Noonan deserves some playing time for sure. Excited for him.

Dont like a better and more accurate view of the game huh? Have you seen games with that angle? Its so much better. You can actually see if a pitch hit the corner or not. And when Zito throws his curveball, or Romo throws his slider, you can see just how nasty the break is.

The angle in Minnesota is too high, but I think STL got it right. Its barely higher than the normal 15 degree angle they use right now, but you can see the strike zone on center.

the current angle more aesthetically pleasing.

the over the top angle is awkward to me

I think this is much more aesthetically pleasing actually. Its a great angle to view a baseball game.
