I mean I batted .600 as a 16 yr old too but I didnt have 14 hrs or 39 steals. My s**t was all line drives(doubles and singles) I had to get lucky to get a triple or steal a base because of that white boy disease
yup, same here. smacked homers in little league then in school ball s**t was a whole new ballgame, but i was good on the bases...not 39 steals good tho, i had between 10-15 steals a year

in the article they said that 502 shot is the longest homer recorded in tropicana field history would have been farther but it hit the back of the dome wall

Yeah.. finish school for what? So you could get a degree and work for a high level company... yeah... I know too many dudes with degrees that aren't doin' too much... go where the money is at... I heard Strasburg getting 30-40 Million guaranteed... He'll get that too.... He can go back to school if he fails and be 40 Millions Dollars richer... SI is going to be under some heat though for this

hes 16...
did we all forget how we were when we were 16? Lol
some of us were on myspace. others were doing stupid s**t.
your whole perspective on life changes when you're 18. you're much more mature and smarter. at least that happend to me. idk about you guys..

if his parents were smart, they should let him finish high school then let him do what he wants. the fact that they are willing to let him go now, shows how greedy they are to get his money

edit: getting the diploma is not that big of a deal considering the position that he is, but is all the stuff that he learns from life on his way to graduating.

Yeah, good post. You think it's BS when you're younger, but you really know so much more and are far more mature even in those couple years and then into your twenties.

Hes going to mature hes still going to be in community college and will be around older people I think he will mature a lot faster. He will probably play baseball for the team just like Albert Pujols did

hes 16 going to college.. i mean i dont know how good he is academically.. hes no bill gates but who knows. either way that college will probably take it easy on him since they want him to promote their team sport at that university.
my boy, solid baseball player, goes to a university here in rhode island. he probably takes like 3-4 classes..full ride because of baseball..work is mad easy.. and hes easily distracted..
imagine a 16 year old in a college environment.. a lot of s**t come into play at such a young age..

at the end of the article, even the kid told his dad he wanted to get his GED and then do college/baseball. and the article suggest he might be going to the 2010 draft.
i bet his father is pushing him to go right into the draft.

manny05 basically what you are saying is he wont get the full high school experience. while it was fun, i would think the getting ready to go pro at 16 experience would be a lot more fun and unique.
