Anyway, good to get Yorman on the list. Question: Given the same number of walks, would you rather Yorman hit .325 or 25 home runs? I'll take the .325. Seems to me that when good athletes make good contact, good things happen.
I'll take the avg, and secondary to that I'll take a decrease in strike outs. Those are the two things thatll help get him to the bigs the fastest.
As excited as I was about the Reds prospects coming into the year, its quickly occurred to me that I really only care about seeing a handful of players bust out, and Yorman is one of them. On a whole, the farm system still has two to three years to bear fruit. Choo and Arroyo are the only guys we'll really have to worry about replacing over the next two years.
