    Just wondering why Danny Janssen doesn't get much love around here? Very impressive season so far as well
    I'm. Super excited about Janssen

    Hoping he becomes an above average every catcher who learns from Martin as they tastefully phase one in for rhe other

    defense - and this is just talk. It's not like Atkins is going to say "fuck that, we're keeping Vlad in the minors until late April 2019 to suck ever ounce of value out of him"

    The Jays would never admit that service time is a factor. The casuals would shit their pants. Defense is a believable excuse for Dummies.

    Ardent Zwelling puts a decent article together here with video from Vlad's game last night, including the good, bad and ugly.

    Also has video on Bichette and Biggio

    It's probably fine to be cautiously optimistic about him, but I'd advise against going full chub. We need to see him move up to a more age-appropriate level before anointing his phallus.

    I take him seriously in that he has a shot to be a MLB regular if everything goes well.

    FTJ with two jonrons today. He's going to be fun to watch in the majors sooner than later.

    His father was a hall of famer.

    The age-appropriate level isn't a good argument. He's 23 and the average age in the Eastern League is 24 according to baseball-reference: https://www.baseball-reference.com/r...gi?id=2b4b5855

    He's at the right level according to his age. But you're right that we shouldn't go full chub just yet.

    What helps his and Kevin Smith's case this season is that both apparently made swing changes in the offseason. In the case of Cavan, I'm more optimistic that he can be a MLB regular. He always had a good sense of the strike zone and made good contact to all sides of the field even going back to his college days. Biggest knock against him was his power, but he seems to have grown into that.
