I'd rather have many different upsides over "Good Ian Desmond" given they have Tatis Jr as their #2.  I mean Benitendi, Healthy Rondon, Coors Bregman, Prime Kinsler, Vintage Pedroia...

 

Maybe I'm just forgetting what "Good Ian Desmond" was.

Its funny you mention Desmond, because that line stood out to me too. I looked up Desmond.  One year of WRC+ in the 120s. I feel like its a poor comparison.  I fully insist his upside is Machado type talent, maybe with steals earlier on and less power than present day Machado, but I think he could push for 30+ HR in his prime. 

 

BP is bad these days

Good Ian Desmond was in the 20/20 club on 4 separate occasions (with an average north of .280 in 3 of those 4 seasons). Arguably, his best year as recently as 2016 with Texas (107 runs, 22 HR, 86 RBI, 21 SB, .285 avg). That said, I never understood how the signing to play 1B made sense for Colorado on any level, but good Ian Desmond was definitely a very solid fantasy asset. I think Tatis' power potential is higher than Desmond's though, so I don't think it's the greatest comp.
