With that said, I did remind him that basing an opinion off of a guy in one viewing is often a poor idea.
As you're well aware, last season Yorman hit .339 with an .817 OPS as a 17-year old. Hamilton hit .318 with an .839 OPS. Obviously pitchers weren't knocking the bats out of their hands then. Ignoring that much larger sample size in favor of one workout/spring game is beyond ignorant, IMO. That would be like me saying Yorman has a chance to be a 60 HR guy because John Fay reported he hit a HR over a light tower in BP a few days ago. I can't take him seriously after that.
