    Given the options available, he's not the four hitter. Even if you ignore all the "just enoughs" he hit and buy the power as real, he's not a better power option for the cleanup spot. I'll grant you he's turned himself into a good hitter, but c'mon. Look at these monsters

    Mlb network had a lineup today with Didi at cleanup?!? How is 2-5 not some version of Stanton, Sanchez, Judge, Bird?

    Forget Murderers Row, that's Death Row if they pull this off. Judge, Bird, Sanchez, Stanton? Get outta here

    Looks like Steamer took his xFIP and doesn't yet believe he can suppress HRs better than the avg bear. And for reasons beyond me, they think he'll walk more This kid has terrific stuff. Seemed a little gassed at the end of the year, hopefully the stamina raises a bit. I'll leave it to you pitching guys as to if he can sustain a certain hr/fb and all that.

    Unless he suddenly develops some power he's not going to be a first round guy. Few extra runs won't change that
  6. Massive spike in FB and hard hit rates, with next to no change in discipline numbers. (Actually contact went up a little from ridiculous to God like). And might've been a little unlucky in the babip at .275. I'm in for 25+

    I'm interested in how he responds to the coming "he sucked in playoffs" narrative. And he did, no doubt, and was visibly upset by it. He's amazing, but he's still super young, and prone to confidence lows like any other young 20s person is. And what a year he had beyond just stat stuff, dude was a ROY on a WS team in a crazy huge market. That's a lot to process in a short period of time.

    I'm in love here. His swing is unreal, creates a ton of bat speed. Had a year now to gain experience, wouldn't be surprised at all to see the K rate drop some. Put me in the power continues to develop category
  10. Nick Castellanos anyone? Love the swing, and the hard hit rate. Possible 100-rbi-on-a-bad-team kinda feel from him this year for me

    Red Sox have been doing pretty well with it

    And everyone wrote KC off pre season '13 & '14 the same way you're writing off Tor here. They wouldn't be likely, but all you have to do is get in.

    I can get behind that logic too. Just so many teams in rebuild mode, I think the Jays could remain viable with an addition or two. Even if they only go get one guy, that guy plus Josh, plus the uber studs around the corner would make for an interesting team. Seems like half the AL is in a big race to see how bad they can be in order to "rebuild". And to a degree I get it, but that creates opportunity for others too. Flags fly forever, worse teams have cobbled together a playoff effort and won this thing before.

    Didn't he get a foot stress fracture last year, and then the production dried up? Pretty sure year before it was a hand injury. Could make for some serious value on draft day, those aren't long term injuries to worry much about

    Difference between Tigers and Jays is Vlad and Bo. Det didn't have that right around the corner. I'd love to see the Jays spend a little coin if only to be watchable this year while we wait for the Twin Towers to arrive.
