    Vlad looks like he has great plate discipline. Looks like quite a few the ump called strikes were off the plate, or maybe it's just the angle.

    Realy looks like he has a good idea of what he wants to hit and recognizes breaking balls well. Some of the curves in that clip were pretty good and he didn't even give them a sniff

    And for what it's worth. Bichette's dad's 1999 season might be my favorite season of all-time. Had an OPS of .895 yet finished with -2.1 WAR.
    Wow, -40 defensive runs. Wtf? Was he literally unable to move while fielding his position?

    Height of the steroid era while playing in Coors Field suppressed his .379 wOBA in to only a 100 wRC+. He was never a good OF but that year he had 13 errors on top of his poor range in a very spacious OF. That made him 2nd in OF errors, somehow Vlad Guerrero had 19! lol Bichette was 2nd in baseball with OF assists though that year. He had 17 (Kotsay had 19). My guess is everyone tried running on him? Or did he actually have a good arm.

    Love the way Vlad Jr and Bichette look at the plate. It was really interesting to see that Bichette doesn't have the leg kick on 2 strike counts (if I saw that right). Both have extremely advanced approaches at the plate imo
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!
