But Stanton might also end up hitting .210 with 20K by week two. High K rates in the minors don't translate wel in the majors.
That's fair, and high K rates are absolutely a possiblity - probably even likely. If he can replicate his power production, though, I'm inclined to see how the two weigh out against each other. If he's a .200 hitter with a HR every 30 ABs, no good. But if he's a .240 hitter with a HR every 18-20 ABs, he's Carlos Pena.
