I think VMart would be a better comparison, with a little more power. Russ is more of a #2 hitter type with good OBP and speed, while Soto and VMart are the classic power catchers. I think Soto's BA will regress a bit but the power is for real. He'll end up with 28-33 HR and about a .285 BA. And that's in his rookie season! This time next year, he might be the top catcher in baseball!
Anyone get the feeling that Mauer has been basically invisible this year?
