The Next Grady Sizemore?

Baseball Prospectus | Events | Chat with Kevin Goldstein: "John (Kansas): I've read a Grady Sizemore comparison for Brett Jackson. Fair or foul?
Kevin Goldstein: Foul. Jackson's tools are good, but not in Sizemore's league."

Here are Sizemore's minor league stats. Here are Brett Jackson's minor league stats.

Age is the biggest difference. 2nd is batting eye as Sizemore walked more in the lower levels. It drop a lot at AA and AAA.

For Jackson, he has more power with +500 SLg to Sizemore never having did so.

I think Goldstein is worng. Jackson is in Sizemore's league. He may not be leading it thanks to being a year older than Sizemore was at equivalent levels.
