You’re like Trump. And that boyer poster we used to have here.
Or his game power in juiced leagues doesn't translate in the bigs after they fix the ball. I have no doubt he'll be a good, useful player, just not the superstar a lot are dreaming on.
The Texas League is not a "juiced league"
a.k.a. the new mlb ball was not used in AA. True?
That's correct. The new MLB ball was used in MLB and AAA only.

Guess who is BA's AA Player of the Year?

(There are a couple other Cardinals in the list of All-Stars.)

Correct. I should have been more specific. It's a historically homer happy offensive league and Hammons Field is a hilarious bandbox.

This.

The wall from center to left is shorter to home plate than some little league fields I've seen.

Why does the big league club allow this? I guess it doesn’t make any diff.

On a couple of the highlights of Carlson's home runs on here, you can see balls barely clearing that 315 fence.

Pop flies in many parks. From rookie ball to MLB.

Not saying Carlson isn't a stud...

So Mo can fleece teams with a fake AA masher and boost righty confidence

Moving Up

Dylan Carlson, OF, Cardinals (No. 49 to No. 25): Though he was a first-round pick in 2016, his athleticism was underrated. He batted .292/.372/.542 with 26 homers and 20 steals this year, winning Double-A Texas League MVP honors before logging a 1.098 OPS in three weeks in Triple-A.

I looked through the thread and I don't think they exist. There's a video of one that was close but ruled a double.

It's 315 down the line in LF and it looks like he only hit three homers RH at home this year. Maybe four. I found video of two of them and a description of a third in a game recap and none are down the line.

So I'd also like a link. Maybe there are some clips of him going oppo LH over that short porch or I missed something.
