Columbus takes a 2-1 lead over Louisville.
Soto is on about a 50 double/20 homerun pace over a full season. As that wiry frame of his fills out some of those double should turn into homeruns. This kid is going to be a special hitter IMO. It will be interesting to see if he cracks the Baseball America top 100 prospects list.
When is Soto going to learn that he can't improve his walk rate if he keeps getting hits like this,.... its unbelievable, his stubbornness to not take a walk
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
