    Re: Kris Bryant Called Up

    Whats your expectations of Bryant?
    Nobody lookin out for nobody
    Maybe we should try and help somebody or be somebody
    Instead of being somebody that makes the news
    So everybody can tweet about it
    And then they start to R.I.P. about it
    And four weeks later nobody even speaks about it.

    He has contact issues. So he's going to strike out a lot. But he does have good discipline to go with absurd power.

    .270/.340/.550 line wouldn't surprise me. That might sound homer-ish, but I do believe he's capable of it.

    Would you be happy with Adam Dunn Pt 2?

    I don't think he'll strike out THAT much. But that wouldn't be the worst case scenario.

    After looking up his BR page, I'd be pretty OK with that haha.

    maybe you all would appreciate Adam Dunn more than many Reds fans did. Lost count on number of debates that started over Dunn.

    Bryant will K a lot because of his Ted Williams swing, but it's also going to lead to a lot of HR's.

    I don't know what he'll be yet, but I think he'll be better than Dunn. Keep in mind I think Dunn for most of his career was a pretty good player.

    Re: Kris Bryant Called Up

    Looks like his number of strikeouts each year continue to go down a little bit. He's definitely not had as a good of a year this year but I imagine he will bounce back next season and be right around his 2016 numbers again.

    He's even outproduced my predictions! People wouldn't be looking down on him if the RBI numbers weren't down. He's having a very similar season otherwise. I guess that's what happens when you don't have a real lead off hitter.

    Thanks for bumping this. Was fun to read.

    Yeah he's been incredible! I think I even heard that Judge broke the rookie record for strikeouts in a season which was previously set by Kris Bryant. I could be wrong but I swear I read that recently.
