    I’d be happy with that from Aquino over the next few years, but it should be better, considering his defense.

    If Aquino walks enough for a .330 OBP, that’s fine.

    But generally .210 or .230 hitters don’t do it for me in the corner OF.

    Re: aquino

    Aquino has NEVER displayed a sufficient walk rate to get to a 330 OBP with his strikeout rates.

    He has the look to me right now of being something like a 240/290/470/760 guy with good defense and speed,

    The package at the plate reminds me of Wily Mo... and he had his good times as well... but because of that contract situation, he probably didnt really get the full development he needed and ended up stunting at the majors... never improved his discipline and couldnt tap into his natural talents. I hope the Reds patience and extra development with Aquino will end with a different conclusion. If he can convert a few K's into walks, and better identify pitches he can hit, then there is a real upside here.

    That’s similar to what RMR projected last year for Aquino, comparing him to Adam Duvall.

    I think Aquino’s biggest problem was having such an outstanding August last year. Now, if he is just a decent MLB OF, people are disappointed. But if he can be what you projected, at least until he hits arbitration, he’ll be quite valuable. Considering the Reds let him go at the beginning of last year, I’ll be happy if he achieves that.

    A pretty good comp as a hitter. Aquino can run pretty fast and is a good defender. If he hits like Inky, he should put up more WAR.

    My point about hindsight had more to do with the fact that this spring, there was a good argument to be made that AA should start the year in Louisville playing full time, particularly with a 25 man roster, no DH, and Ervin coming off an 800 OPS 2019.

    I'm firmly in agreement that he should've been up here for a while now.

    You keep citing this and ignoring that the period of success in September also came with a sub .300 OBP and 30% K rate.
    He ran into a few more HRs but he still had his warts.

    I am not one who thinks he is wart free. Just that warts and all, he’s still a valuable player. I mean, he put up an .800+ OPS with a 30% K rate.

    Aquino with his first HR of 2020.

    He now has a .754 OPS which is higher than the 2020 OPS of Ervin and VanMeter combined.

    I thought it was funny response to a rather silly post on your part, Bruce.
