Doubt it, as I still don't think he approaches Trout-level SB production.

He's one of the top young hitters in the game, which is all that really matters in the end.

To me he's prime Joey Votto, except not the low power year Joey Votto, the MVP one

I wish the Soto-shuffle wasn't a thing, but I really love the kids skillset. Gonna be wrecking baseballs for a while.

Why? Spices up the game.

Not everybody has the same palette. He does it, at least in part, to annoy pitchers; is it any wonder there are people that don't like it? I love it, for the record. All the better if some people find it grating; it means it probably works.

Oh, and full disclosure, I'd probably hate it if I didn't like Soto so much.

As a former high school/D2 college/current tri-state relief pitcher .. I love when batters play games like this, just means that they are giving me the opportunity to play the same games back, and 1 of 2 things usually result. 1. They are good sports and we both have a little fun. 2. They can't take what they give and in turn, I get in THEIR head and K.

As a former little leaguer/12u all star, I hate when Soto does this.

I actually like when people "spice" up the game, so to speak, but this one thing particularly gets on my nerves.

And I really like Soto. Super envious that he's going to be a Nats for years. I rather enjoy seeing variety/tics/etc. but I do not like this one. It's too "in your face" seeming towards the pitchers. The strut I hate less than I do the half stare down he does with the pitcher.

I love Soto, just hate this.

It definitely doesn't detract from me being able to acknowledge how uber-talented he is. If I felt like Soto was going to continue to contribute 10-15 stolen bases a year I'd say there's not debate to who the best dynasty asset is. Heck, there's nearly no debate as it is.

Think we can expect a direct relationship between shimmy/staredown and hbp in 2020?

I would expect a positive correlation.

I wish there wasn't such a negative stigma about showing emotions during a baseball game.  It's makes everything more entertaining and lively.  That is what makes the WBC such a great event.

In sngehl's defense, there is a huge difference between emotion and intimidation/being a punk.

So, it's safe to assume you hated Bregman carrying his bat to first?

Stras was pretty good too.  No easy decisions.

Soto's plate discipline for his age is bordering on the supernatural.  As I said in another thread, there are no limits to his upside for 2020.

Oh okay.

Here I thought I was in the fantasy baseball talk board.  My bad!  Carry on.
