Just wait until this guy inevitably begins to slump/hits a rough patch .. then he will instantly go from phenom to overhyped trash around here .. he won't even be nice/good then

 

 

More like instantly he will go from a .420 OBP to a .400 OBP....

It wasn’t “around here” who said “nice and good”, it was you. You would then be even more guilty of downplaying what he’s done if you called him “overhyped trash”. 

 

This would only enhance my point.

I just don't see how a slump is possible with this guy. He's elite with an elite eye. Enjoy the ride.

There are 240 players who have batted at least 250 times this season. The leader among them in wRC+ is Mike Trout, at 190. In second place, we find Mookie Betts. After Betts, there’s Jose Ramirez. After Ramirez, there’s J.D. Martinez. And after Martinez, there’s Juan Soto. There’s 19-year-old Juan Soto, with a wRC+ of 161.”

 

“there are 200 players who have hit the ball the other way at least 50 times, and out of that group, Soto has baseball’s single-highest opposite-field wRC+“

 

The most mind boggling stats of the fan graphs article.  Just insane.

I was so impressed with Jose Fernandez when the Marlins called him up when he was 18 and he started putting up numbers that were hard to believe when you took his age into account. He played with such unabashed joy of the game, it was hard not to smile at how much fun he was obviously having out there, even when he was just in the dugout...he was impossible not to like.

 

I see a lot of that in Juan Soto....so advanced for his age, physically & mentally. It's hard to fathom what he's been doing considering he is just 19. The way he has fun out there is infectious & it is hard not to like.

 

I'm a fan, hope he stays healthy so we all can see just how good he can become.

I love Juan Soto stats... I hope they always stay this absurd.

The league doesn't care how old he is.  Soto in a 2-1 count, Turner steals 2nd, they IBB Soto to face Rendon.  That tells you all you need to know, lol.

Really lame of Trea to steal a base in front of Soto with a 2-1 count. They put him on intentionally and Rendon flew out. 

 

Trea is stupid.

This is pretty cool - but its probably just because the aging curve is getting lower overall and pitchers are throwing harder.

Just chalk it up to a major shift in youth, not Soto's talent or anything

Agreed, he needs to be sent down for some additional seasoning. #kidsnotreadyyet

What happened to the “he’s not that special” thing?  We still doing that?

This is an underrated comment right here.

Just had an at bat of nothing but sliders. Took 2 in the middle of the zone for strikes and chased one way out of the zone to strike out on a check swing. Given that almost all of his HRs have come off the FB...I can see now what teams are going to try to do to him and it does worry me a bit. He will have to adjust, but after today no one is going to throw him a fastball anywhere near the zone if they’ve learned anything.
