I also tend to think his HR swing is legit. Not that there is not plenty of reasons to be skeptical, but it kind of feels like this is something to stay. I just really, really hope he cuts down on the strikeouts. Pitch selection would go a long way in replacing some of those K's with walks. If he maintains near this home run pace, but gets on base to a .360 clip, the Reds have a star on their hands.
