Very interesting thought TR. With the baseball draft being 50 rounds and 30 plus teams, the rapid fire nature and volume of players from high school to JC to college makes the type of insight gathering you talk about very difficult I am sure.
If it is any consolation, on a cold, blustery, snowy Saturday night when baseball was cancelled, my wife and I had the pleasure to take 6 of my sons teammates to dinner. Wonderful young men and very solid citizens. You know you are dealing with fine young men when the discussions include how one player can use some of his bonus to pay for his parents travel to see him play this summer, one discusses talking with his Dad 3 times per day on the phone, and not one of them ordered a beer--game tomorrow.
