    Am I the only one who thinks Yonder looks a bit like Albert Pujols in that first photo?

    he has been my comp. to him all along. I know that is lofty expectations b/c of what Albert is, but their games are just sooooo similar

    Albert Pujols is a future HOF'er. Please don't start the comps for Alonso as a perennial MVP candidate.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    FWIW, I'm not comparing Yonder to Pujols as a player. I said he looks similar to Pujols in the face.

    Looks like his build very similar to Votto's. Though that crouch he's got looks a little Pujols-esque, as does his soft face.
    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.

    Pujols has a soft face? I always thought it was rather severe. Yonder does have a rather soft face though, almost like he still has baby fat.

    I am not saying he is a future HOF, I am just saying he has similar skill sets as Pujouls..low K's, high BBs, spread the ball around the field, similar builds. Whether is relates to anything even half of what Pujouls is as a pro, the tools are similar.

    Wasn't Pujols already a year into his pro career by this age? I'm not discounting your comparison, just pointing out that Yonder is already Albert him in terms of development (which is no knock on Yonder).

    To me, Yonder projects more as Nick Johnson with a bit more power. Still a damn fine player though. I don't think anyone compares favorably to Pujols, really in the history of the game.
