    There's plenty of pop in the bat. People need to stop making small sample size proclamations like this one , and the other popular one I've seen lately that he needs to be a better base stealer.

    Theres nothing wrong with his start to the season so far at all.

    I could be wrong but I don't see a real good swing plane there. He gives me Lawrie vibes with that little wrist hitch thing.

    I understand to a point, and yes it would be nice if a few of those singles were doubles or a triple or a homer. But stating that there's no pop in the bat based on 15 PAs is just gruber-esque.

    Can you link me some video of his swings so far this year? I didn't see much of ST and i'd like to take a look and see what you're referring to.

    Agreed. I think there's at least average in-game power in his bat.

    I noticed that to. There's actually a video on, Sportsnet I think, of JD teaching Alford his swing, so I think we're correct to notice that similarity.

    SRF didn't make it out of the second inning again today after giving up a 3-run HR.

    Bo Bichette on the other hand is back at it again: 1-2 with another double.

    Its absolutely perplexing that they would reach for a college hitter with obvious contact issues. At least when you go that route on a HS bat you are hoping that three years down the road the kid makes improvements. Just a stupid, stupid pick.

    Stat scouting - I have to agree. A college guy striking out that much in the lower minors without major power? piss off.

    Stat scouting his college stats would show you that he struckout at a 17% rate in his draft year with big time power (.254 ISO). You'd be looking for your area scouts to identify that he has a massive hole in his swing or that contact issues would pop in pro ball.

    I don't love Woodman, but I'm not jumping off the ledge at his slow start. He had a 215 wRC+ in Lansing in double the amount of PAs he has this year at the end of last season.
