Can't wait for this guy to ruin you in the playoffs when yordy will have to adjust to a major league scouting book past 200 at bats.

 

This is still one of my favorite posts.

 

Yordan could flirt with 30 HR this year if he keeps mashing... definitely 25+.

Pretty much a lock for 25+. This guy is a All-Star for years to come.

What is interesting to me is going back through Jordan's AAA time this year and his MLB time I don't see where he has ever once gone into any type of prolonged slump. That's what makes a superstar, normal players go into 3 week long slumps. Superstars are "off" for a week and get back to doing what they do. Houston has a stud here.

Yep, I agree. He's not going to hit 3 HR every night, but he isn't going to go into prolonged slumps, either. I almost expect a hit and run or rbi from him at this point... he is consistently unreal.

Who in the hell is Jordan? 😉

THAT's why he mashes the ball. He has one eye looking at the pitcher and one eye looking at the ball coming in. Oof.

Don't hate El Chameleon

Yes. His eyes can move independently and lock in on the the target like a heat seeking missile and destroy the target (i.e. baseball).

This is one spicy meatball.

IN Defense of this post. He has not yet reached 200 ABs yet so it still remains to be seen if scouting reports will adjust to him,contain him and that he will ruin your playoffs if you own him.

It's not that they're not trying, it's that they haven't yet been successful.  It took MLB teams ~500 PA to find a way to reliably get Bellinger out in his rookie year, but they eventually did, forcing him to counter-adjust over the course of the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018.  If anyone playing fantasy baseball could reliably time these inflection points, they'd be extremely wealthy, and the industry would collapse.  We're all in some sense extrapolating from his scouting pedigree, minor league production, his numbers so far in MLB, and what we see when we watch.

It's not inherently right or wrong to come away from those inputs with a more cautious / pessimistic outlook, but at some point, when a player is this locked in, you're going to have a hard time finding options to fill in who (a) aren't susceptible to the same bad timing of their slumps, and (b) have anything near his ceiling if they perform at or close to their baseline.

You can talk all you want, just be mindful that pretty much everyone in the lineup had 3 hits that day against the Orioles. I'll return around around Sept 20ish and I'll either admit I was wrong or laugh at every single one of you that are gauging top30+ on 100-170 at bats
