  1. 99% of the time I’m with you completely, and I still agree for the most part. Howevah(Stephen a Smith voice), since his swing change, even with a shoulder injury, he has been a 300 guy with big time power. 42 homers in 430 at bats. Now of course the swing change was in spring training so the sample size is small, 430 at bats between AAA and the majors. I think this is the main disconnect in this thread. The detractors should at least acknowledge that this is a completely different guy than from even last year. I also don’t think any of us believe he is a 300 950 OpS guy. But I do believe 265 330 530 is possible
  2. Absolutely not. The promising thing about him is that this new stance and swing is undefeated. He didn’t make the change till this preseason and he has torn up AAA and this sting in the bigs. The tools have always been there. His ceiling is quite high
  3. Anubody have any thoughts on him. 21 year old in high A in the Reds organization. Supposedly solid D at short and really hitting well in Daytona. Leading the league in doubles and really showing some power in a league that suppresses it greatly. Can run a little as well. Just won player of the week in the league and hit another homer and double tonight
  4. Showing life in AA. OPSing 877 since the promotion. Over 1.000 the last 10 with 11 walks and 7 ks. Still not exactly mashing but you gotta love the plate discipline. I could see a Rendon type career arch, mid 700 ops for the first few years then he taps into the power and pushes it well over 800. Probably never gets to what Rendon has done the last few years tho, being over 900 consistently. Also think India hits for a good bit less power but steals a lot more bags.
  5. Yeah Bell is awful. He gets way too cute with platoons and double moves. Manages every game like it’s game 7. He’s doing this with a Reds roster that has young guys who need everyday at bats to see what they have. He needs to have Winker, Senzel, and Aquino in the of every day with Ervin playing somewhat regularly. Then let Van Meter start the majority of games at 2nd base and hope he is a fixture there. As a Reds fan I’m pretty excited about what Aquino can be. He’s not the ordinary 25 year old, come out of nowhere type. He’s always had the frame and tools. The swing change has given him new life’s. I think he can be a big time power bat in right, with decent mobility and a strong arm. Of course he will swing through plenty pitches but that’s fine.
  6. En fuego. Great player on a great deal
  7. Yeah he’s gonna hit. Just be patient. Reds are rolling and he’s a big part of it
  8. Not much reason to own with Scooter coming back, even before them really. Iglesias and Dietrich both having career years and the Reds “trying” their hardest to compete
  9. There we go. He is going to be a good hitter. The only questions are how much power will he hit for and how much will he run. Right now he is being a little too patient. Bump up the aggression and hopefully we see some more pop. I think he tops out around 25 or so bombs but I think he can be a 35 plus base stealer for a few years. Hopefully hit around 290-300 with a high OBP
  10. Yep, I think he is going to run a lot more than was initially expected.
  11. Senzel reminds me so much of Bregman. Build and demeanor are so similar
  12. I agree. Giving a good bill of health, I can see a 20 20 guy with upper mid(375-390) obp and a near 300 average.
