  1. Hoskins is more apt to taking strikes in the zone than Anderson. Anderson for a rookie is showing an elite eye. His BABIP will normalize to around .300, but his OBP will be in the .400s
  2. He, Harper, Votto & Blackmon in the NL MVP race this season. Might also throw in Hoskins and Bryant in there.
  3. He’s got the type of swing/approach that will keep him from having frequent slumps, even as a rookie. I see him putting up real solid numbers this season: something like .270/65/25/75 with a decent K/BB rate.
  4. Mark Grace with more power would be the best comparison. I think his K:BB will be 1:1 no pressure on this kid right? mark grace with more power? kid has played ONE professional game, and we're saying he's going to be a better hitter than a 3-time all-star with a career avg of .302? and who struck out 642 times, compared to 1,075 walks in his career? I get we have reason to be excited here with a good prospect....but we need to tap the breaks a bit. He won't have Grace K/BB peripherals. As mentioned it will be 1:1, which is worse than Grace, but still good. Though, I don't think it's far fetched to project better power than Grace (who is career .139 ISO). I do agree We need to let Moran get some more PAs before make make further comparisons. But if everything turns out as expected, I can see him being better than Grace, no doubt...at least offensively.
