    and done, but hes still very very raw .i already think Russell is a betetr prospect than Baez .i give Baez about a 5% chance of sticking at SS and if and when he mones to 3B, he will lose a lot of his value .not saying he wont still be valuable, but the same numbers at 3B and SS dont even compare in terms of value all the scouting reports ive read on Russell suggest that he was the steal of the 1st round and that he was much more polished than was expected .ive even seen ETA’s for him ranging anywhere from September of 2013 to June 2015. interested to hear your take, as im always open to changing my opinion on prospects. i get that Baez has that rare monster raw power, but hes got A LOT of work to do and will most likely get exploited by pitchers at higher levels who can abuse a guy they know has extremely poor plate discipline. then again, he could hit one 480 feet in his next AB.
