I'd take talent over an "eye". He will only get better the more pitchers he faces.
I'll take skill
. Rocco doesn't know how to control the stike zone. All good hitters are able to control the strike zone. He had a 128-30 strikeout-to-walk ratio last season with a .326 OBP. That is just atrocious. The ability to draw walks is a skill learned at a very young age, usually in the minors. I am skeptical that he will ever learn to have an "eye". I say he hits in the .250-.265 range with an awful OBP.
I think I will take talent over skill. Name this two players who produces these stats their first full year in the league. Both were know as free swingers.
.306 30 hr 122 r 98 rbi 22 sb
.268 18 hr 77 r 73 rbi 43 sb
Player #2 is a little closer in comparison to Rocco. By the way, Rocco's stats were as follows:
.289 11 rh 89 r 78 rbi 27 sb
