It's funny that they have this quote in the article about his dad
Like a lot of fathers, Tony admits he can sometimes be too critical of his son.
“If he goes 3-for-4, I’m like, ‘That fourth at-bat there you threw that thing away,’” Tony said, before recalling an off-season conversation with his son. “He said, ‘You know, I’m not going to be perfect, can you, like, cut me some slack?’ And that’s kind of been the difference.”
But then criticizes TLR for being too critical while Farrell is more positive. Kinda seems like his dad was fairly critical all along as well.
Also Rasmus' power numbers are up, but he is playing in a ballpark that is a lot easier to hit HRs. Of his 10 HRs, 9 have been in home run havens (Tor, Tex, CHW, KC). Obviously he can only hit where he is playing but I wonder if that has helped his numbers a bit. And maybe I am just bitter in that i drafted him in fantasy leagues and gave up on him too quick when he had a horrendous first 6 weeks.
