Striking out over 50% though 😐

If he homers in 10% of his ABs with a 50% K rate, would you be cool with that? 

[That'd be a 60 homer run and 350 strikeouts, but ... lol]

I guess it depends on the overall OBP but unless there are a good amount of other hits and walks in there that’s still just a .100 batting average/OBP so no lol

I would imagine a few bunt singles against the shift are in there, too. lol

I was talking to my father about this yesterday. Conine excites me with the homers but his strikeouts are an issue and he will have to improve on that or the best he'll end up being is a pinch hitter in MLB when you need a homer in the 9th or something.

Yep. I'm not trying to be a negative newt about the whiffs but if it's that high in AA ball then it'll be worse at the MLB level for sure. I want Niner 2.0 to succeed as a Marlin as much as any Marlin fan would.
