One MLB season is also going to be very hit and miss at predicting career numbers. Most MLB players do not OPS 880+. I think most of us would have to get pretty good odds to bet Frazier can keep this up next year.
His numbers this year are not enough to convince me that he is at least a .750 bat going forward, however his MiLB numbers don't scream there is no way he can OPS .800 in the majors. I am just going to hope for the best.
Would you say that scouting reports are more accurate now compared to 30-40 years ago or less accurate?
