Dude misses the ball with his bat at an insane pace. Record breaking perhaps.

125 PAs...

He could lower his K% by 10 in less than a week.

I, too, remember how bad Carpenter started the season. Fun with small samples!

Tyler O'Neill had a decent K/BB in minors. It'll translate with time. He has 1 fWAR in his short time. Bader has 30% K rate. O'Neill has similar speed and hits for more power. Even if O'Neill has a 30% K rate too, he will likely walk more than Bader, unless all minor league numbers mean nothing to you.

Stupid statement. Small Sample Theater.

He had big time MiLB K%. Can't just wave that away.

Both of those statements are untrue.

Bryant's was 31.9 %
O'Neill's was 31.4 %

I was wrong about Bader. Thought it was worse than O'Neill's. But Bader's K/BB is worse.

What numbers are you looking at bud?

Bader had 298 K in 1254 PA. That's 23.8%.
Bryant had 212 K in 792 PA. That's 26.8%.
O'Neill had 618 K in 2228 PA. That's 27.7%.
