2011 Topps Wil Myers   Leave a comment

Wil Myers 2011 ToppsI had heard a ton about Wil Myers and how good he was before I saw him. I think when you hear so much about these prospects you tend to get an image in your head of a Major League ballplayer. I was shocked when I saw Wil Myers dig in for a spring training game this year. He was just so…young. He looked like he would fit in at a local high school baseball game, not be a name on the lips of the front office of a major league team.

Myers has done nothing so far to suggest that he isn’t deserving of the praise he is getting. He has been learning the toughest position to play for years now as a catcher but that weight has been lifted off his shoulders. He is an outfielder now for nearly the sole purpose of getting him to Kansas City sooner. I sometimes get in a hurry to want to see these prospects in KC but seeing a guy this young makes me realize that there is plenty of good playing years ahead and that it is essential to not rush these guys into competition they are not ready for.
