Pretty easy read but it features Joe Mauer and scouting grades.

The part on Bo was very interesting.  I've done my fair share of speculating on scouting grades, so this was a good read.  Thanks for posting!

These defenses of the 2-8 scale always seem very circular in their reasoning to me.

 

"The 2-8 scale is an objective rubric of a subjective process because it loosely corresponds to skills that are exactly measurable."

Well, there's that.
