I work for an independant publication and scout baseball (mostly the Yankees system) for a living, and I talk to scouts that work for MLB teams all the time. Three different scouts I talked to that work for MLB teams all told me the same exact thing about Tabata.
And besides, if you knew anything, you would realize what player comparisons are all about. Comparing a player to Manny Ramirez doesn't mean that the player will be as good as he is. But when you watch Tabata, his stance, swing, etc., the first player he would remind you of would be Ramirez. The fact that he has similar hitting traits to Ramirez at a young age also supports that comparison. Also, I believe it was in the NY Post a few months ago, Joel Sherman received the same information from one of the scouts that I have spoken to.
