KLaw is out of the MLB for a reason, the reason is he is a dick and he wasn't as great as he thought he was. He has some good opinions, and some bad ones too. A lot of the time he has pretty good reasons, but sometimes it is completely his opinion (which is what scout does... give their opinion). I listen to BA and BP more since those guys spend more time watching the prospects than he does, and they have more scouts giving more opinions. KLaw is just a voice, and a voice that hates the way the Twins operate (many things I agree with, some I don't).
KLaw isn't with a MLB team because he resigned from the Blue Jays to go to ESPN and he stays there cause he can spend more time with his family by working there. He is very well respected in his field...
It's a well known fact that Keith Law hates the Twins, I just can't take his extremely biased opinions seriously.
No doubt that KLaw is the KOS (King of Snark) and is very opinionated, but why do you say he is extremely biased? I've been reading him for years and don't see it. He gets accused of east coast bias due to his ESPN affiliation, but I don't see it. He bases his opinions on performance and what he sees on the field. He does not work for a team so has no attachment to certain picks.
The fact that people from every team fanbase have accused KLAW of hating thier team shows how unbiased he really is.
Great point righty! He is an equal opportunity hater. He just calls it like he sees it.
KLaw's admitted bias is for guys that he was impressed with in person. Trevor Bauer is a big example. He was a big pusher of the "Free Trevor Bauer" hashtag on Twitter that found its way to ESPN's main baseball coverage multiple times. He has admitted having a hard time downgrading Bauer because he saw him so incredibly good.
I would say it is wrong to hate people in general, unless they have committed some horrible act. KLaw has not done that. All of your assumptions about him as a person are based on almost no data, I would guess. The man has opinions and states them, positive and negative. Some people cannot handle that. The thought that he hates any team is silly, imo. He might disagree with how a team does things, but that is not hatred for the team. Hating because of disagreement in opinion is part of our societal problem right now. I am pretty sure KLaw would say that also.
it astounds me how personally some fans take hard discussions about their favorite teams.....
That is not how it is used, often, in discussing KLaw....Ymmv on the power of words
Rosario will need more time at 2B but I think he should be fine there. He still has multiple levels to make it through before he will be in the big leagues.
