    Nolan Arenado wasn’t even really supposed to be Nolan Arenado. Lets see how Vientos does in A ball next season. The power he is already showing is very impressive for an 18 year old.

    He's still highly projectable. I have no idea if he can learn any plate discipline - it tends to be hard to learn. But if he does, even just a little, his explosive bat speed will translate to some big years at the plate and I'm confident his defense will improve at SS.

    He could be a bust, but he's probably just as able of morphing into 4-5 WAR All Star. It all hinges on that plate discipline IMO.
    I great indicator for plate discipline is walk rate. And that is improving steadily throughout the season.

    And it’s still only 5%.

    Even with Rosairo’s hot streak, he’s still worth negatives in the WAR department lol.

    Rosie's got a long way to go.

    Nimmo's the guy who really needs to bring down the strikeouts.

    Rosario's walk rate has actually been encouraging for me. Month by month he is
    March/April: 4.6%
    May: 2.1%
    June: 7.4%
    July: 6.8%
    August: 6.7%

    That’s better than his 2.8% at the start of the season.

    28 homers and 4 homers this month, so Alonso is killing it this month.

    If POS.org was going to bring up T-Bow, they should give this guy a shot.

    At least he has a potential future.

    Of course he's coming up in September. They were talking about not calling him up until then, that's all.
