Cespedes has good power, but chases balls in the dirt, and breaking balls outside a lot.
Just don't throw him any fastballs.
Unless he can show better plate displine, 25-30 hrs probably his area.
To say he will be better then Stanton is crazy imo.
Yoenis's first HR was on a curve ball. So I guess dont throw him fastballs or curves? As for Stanton, I think Stanton is more of Yoenis's floor than his ceiling. Can Yoenis hit .260 with 30 HR like Stanton? Sure. However Yoenis can steal a base, if he would stop hitting balls over the fence we might just see that skill. Stanton not much of a SB threat and Stanton is one of the most over drafted players in the game.
So I guess he's HOF after 3 games. He could be good, but give it a little time before you call him better than a 35 HR hitter. And Stanton can steal close to 10 bases, which may not sound like much, but is valuable.
I think the pitchers will see how much junk outside of the strike zone he will chase. Lets see how he's doing in June...
