Im passing alot of proven talent with the 1st pick of the 2nd round to take a one year wonder comming off wrist surgery. Do people think his numbers will actually get better?! I can only see him stayin the same at best or regressing now that the cats out of the bag (sort of speak)
The kid is a former top prospect who finally realized his potential. His plate discipline is stellar for a power hitter, and makes him a very safe projection. There is an issue with his wrist injury, and most people believe this will sap some of his power. In 480ab he had 36HR with 100RBI and 96R. So even if you lower his HR rate (due to speculation with his wrist injury) he should at least match last years totals with 600Ab.
Now I could see Manny being argued over Quentin. I think it will depend on where Manny goes. If he goes to a contender, I could see him having a great year. But if he is out of the spotlight I could see him mailing it in early. Also with Manny getting up in age, injuries will become more frequent and lingering. So the "safe" pick, also has issues.
