Reply to "Personal BP Wood Bat Hit Trax Metrics"

Thanks all. I just am struggling to understand why the metrics on a 14-15 year old don't matter. Yes, for sure, you have the distractions (3 G's) and derailments, etc. But, that's like me saying that I should quit my job now because the sun is going to burn out down the line and the earth is going to be one big ice ball in the end...so, why bother worrying about anything now? More to point, if Bazooka Blaze is a 6-3, 225 pound, 14 year old who can hit the ball out of Marlins Park (or whatever it's called) several times during a round of BP, are coaches and scouts going to look at that and say "Aw, Geez, who cares? He's only 14. Nothing matters for a 14 year old and nothing matters in BP. Let's wait until he's 17 and have him hit off a tee before we make any determinations on this kid."
