I was talking about a singular swing, one, when referring to the video I was watching. And you are correct, but then you have to try to find out why that is? Maybe contact lenses helps, or eye exercises, or what have you.
His K rate in the minors is just under 28%, so yeah, that's bad. And yet he still has a career minor league OPS of .861. Being that he played in the PCL probably skews that a bit, but the power is legit. We'll see what Elias does with him.
Well I guess. I trust mike. But regarding swings, it’s possible to have a fine swing and still not be able to hit anything. I didn’t check his K rate( oh I just see your comment about his K rate... um, that’s not good) or his contact rate, but I would hope they are both good.
This is what I've been working on. Ready, Steady, GO! from the 60's. I'd guess no later than '65, Gerry and the Pacemakers' absolute zenith...
Stones with Brian still
Beatles introducing PJ Proby doing "Walkin' The Dog"!!!
backed up by The Vernons Girls (sounds like The Go-Gos...)
Cilla Black (pictured) belting out the standard
Gerry and the Pacemakers
Long John Baldry doing "Got My Mojo Workin'"!
and that's all just the first 15 minutes!
Ready, Steady, GO!
That’s fine and true, but the Rays are the best in the biz at developing talent. If they’ve given up on him, it’s fair to think they exhausted all the possibilities first. I think Grenier might not pan out, and Hall is still a couple years off, so if the Os think they see something worthwhile, Wander certainly has some appeal.
A good swing is not defined by the results. Also, remember that SF Giants are not know to produce good young hitters through draft and development. If you are the Orioles, you have to believe in your coaches and development staff when compared with other teams. With this much in his tank, you have to take a shot on a big power guy like this.
I watched some Spring Training at bats as well. He hit 4-5 HR's in the last few years. One video had him on the same field as Hanser Alberto in February 2019, lol.
