I know what people are going to say, but hear me out...
1. 2 years ago he was the can't miss untouchable prospect with all the tools. He hasn't lost any tools, just has an apparent bad attitude. He suffered no injuries, or setbacks, the Mets just wouldn't let him play.
2. The Nats are getting a new ballpark. I don't know if it's "hitter friendly", but it's certainly better than RFK. He's got plenty of power anyway.
3. He'll finally get some regular at bats, and a legit chance to show what he's capable of. I don't think any of you can honestly tell me he got a fair chance in NY. He's going to start in center for the Nats.
I personally think he'll be very productive this year. He might need to gain some discipline at the plate, but yeah, the hype wasn't just random nonsense. Dude can play. He goes very late in any sort of draft these days, and has... at least the way I see it 30/30 potential.
He is a nice sleeper, maybe 20/20+ someday but 30/30 is a bit of a reach. He doesn't have that type of power and isn't very good at stealing yet. Also he wasn't really untouchable, he was overhyped a bit even though he does have quite a bit of talent. This year I could see 10-15hr 15-25sb, which is still quite nice.
