    Seems like David Vidal has been off his game lately. Anybody know if he's been ailing in some fashion?
    What is amazing is that his stolen bases have dropped off as his avg and oba have risen.

    Puzzling.

    Lost amid the dominance of Torreyes and the re-emergence of Hamilton is the season of David Vidal. Vidal's thrown together a very, very good season. He's shown a solid bat on ball skill, lots of power (a 500+ slugging in the second half with an 880 OPS), and he's doubled his BB rate over the course of the season.

    That 14% BB rate over the second half isn't the only good news. He's cut his K rate by 5% as well. Add that to glowing reports about his glove at the hot corner (a major worry from the draft), and you could very well see Vidal as a top ten prospect-- perhaps even top five-- in the Red system.
