Touche...haha but...

You have to agree that Delmonico has been a very pleasant surprise

I like Nicky. He might just be a capable starting Major leaguer. That said, I'm of the opinion that Yoan is going to be much more than that. Could I be wrong and could he be a bust? Of course but I don't really care what his first 100 ab's say.

I would say making career projections after 110 ML AB's is incredibly irresponsible.

 

But you guys do you.

 

I know you're right but I haven't seen that big league star quality from him.

I remember seeing Mike Trout in his rookie year and it was just damn, this guy's Mickey Mantle.

Don't see it in Moncada.

This feels like a 10+ strikeout game for Rodon.

 

Well he was 1 short. Still a great outing from him.

Another great outing! He's starting to look like the ace we hoped we'd see when he was drafted. Still very young.

What if I told you Moncada is no Corey Bellinger which is what I was kind of hopping for.

 

Let's just hope that Boston scout wasn't right about Moncada being a bit of a head case at the plate.

Come on pen, don't blow this, I want to see the Twinkies suffer.

 

Opposing teams have to feel good a game like this isn't over.

The standard comp is Cano, with more speed. Moncada will have to go quite a ways to match Cano's rookie year, at the same age of 22.

Mike Trout is 2011:

 

July: 43 AB's, .163 AVG, .213 OBP

August: 25 AB's, .400 AVG, .464 OBP

September: 55 AB's, .182 AVG, .250 OBP

 

123 AB's, .220 AVG, .250 OBP

 

 

I think you are remembering wrong...

Hmm never heard that before. I do wonder why he wears the face protector. Don't see many wearing that. I mean I guess you can see good with it on and does protect your face but hard to describe how I feel about it. Seems logical but out of place.

Just ugly from Yoan. Has no idea how to protect and his swing from right side is not MLB caliber

 

Think Kopech will end up the prize of that trade. But that sucks because he can't really exceed Sale, so we'll have ended up trading Sale for a guy who might approach his talents, a highly touted MIer who strikes out way too much and s***tily switch hits, and two longshot back end pieces.

 

I don't honestly think this will end up a positive rebuilding trade for us.

Could the shin splints be bothering him? He hasn't really been completely healthy, for a while now. He had the bruised thumb, at Charlotte, then the collision, and now the shin splints.

22 years old

Shin splints, collision with Garcia, thumb injury

Less than 150 MLB AB's

Been in a new city for less than a month

Still holding a .320 OBP

 

 

But lets completely write him off and already talk about how the Sale trade was a mistake. :huh:

I said that a while back and was criticized. IOW, I agree.

 

Moncada obviously has a lot of trouble hitting a breaking pitch. So that's what he will be seeing. Hope he figures it out.

:wub: next year is going to be fun for some sox fans as they aren't handling the ups and downs of a team that had actual major leaguers, next year outside of Abreu, Rodon, Anderson and the few FA this is going to be a green team.
