    I am hoping Castillio turn into Soto Well the "OLD SOTO" and I hope B-Jax figures it out and turns his call up into Rizzo 2.0 and become our CF for the next 10 years.
    BUTTERFLIES AND RAINBOWS!!!!! JP611 Just called me an ecstasy user!!!! WTF!!!

    Welcome Tyler Kolek or Brady Aiken or Carlos Rodon if not one of them say hello To Alex Jackson.

    I think Jackson will work it out. I don't think either will be stellar, but I could see these stats realistically:

    BJax: .265/.310/.420 with 15 HR, 65 RBI and 20 steals
    Castillo: .230/.310/.450 with 18-20 HR and 60 RBI (maybe one steal).

    Basically I see BJax's good year as JUpton's bad year and Castillo as a decent Soto year with lower BA.

    You think Castillo is dropping a .220ISO?! Dude has only done that once in the minors. I severely doubt he has that much power. I think he's more like .250/.320/.410 type thing.

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    If B Jax hits .265, then his OBP will be .330+ easy... Heck he had a .303 OBP while hitting .175 this past season.

    Oh, definitely. He'll carry a .090 to .100ISOBP probably pretty comfortably.

    True dat. I think it's best just to wait and see.

    I still have some hope for a .750+ OPS'ing CF'er that is a little above average defensively. Just praying the swing tweaking will help him make contact. Where others see a burned out prospect that can't hit the ball, I see a 24 year old that has some solid tools and hopefully, with some teaching, can still turn out

    Castillo...since he plays catcher if he can muster a .320/.400 line and play solid defense I'm okay with it. I think that's very possible from him as well.

    I think fans would be higher on Jackson if it wasn't for guys named Corey Patterson, and Felix Pie. Now, we feel like every outfielder will be a bust.

    When Jackson makes contact, he has good results. Making more contact would make a huge difference, and possibly turn him into a really solid ML player.

    Some guys take some time to figure it out. One bad stint in the majors doesn't mean the end of Jackson.

    Both of these guys having a good spring would be nice. Castillo seems to have a solid bat and a solid arm... I hope he gets better at framing and receiving pitches.

    This may sound a little simple, but if Jackson can improve drastically on his swings and misses, he will be a stud. If not, he will not be in the bigs too long. His strikeout rate has reached a historic level. Only one player in MLB history has had a higher percentage of K's with at least 100 Ab's!! Dave Duncan struck out 49.5% of the time in 1967. BJax was at 49.17% last year. He will be out of baseball very soon if he doesn't reduce that in a major way.
