With that said, his power is absolutely real. If he settles in as a .270/.335/.500 guy, that is pretty darn good still.
Is there luck when driving balls to the gaps with regularity? I have seen every Frazier PA and there are rarely bloop or dribblers off his bat that go for hits. Is the luck theory that hitting it where they ain't isn't a skill?
