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.

no one expects him to hit 40 homers per year. if he can go .300 20/20 with a couple 25-30 homer seasons sprinkled in, all the while playing solid defense in the OF, then that's a pretty damn good ballplayer.

it's ok to be excited about carlson considering how bad our farm system is as a whole.

To do it once is an MVP caliber season by itself, let alone expecting it to be an average year.

So he hit one home run that would've been to the track at Busch in LF according to that chart. Pretty sure that one was on the road but I'd be happy to see the video of that and the other one that supposedly exists.

But that doesn’t fit my narrative- despite my being a data guy.

A little information can be a dangerous thing?

For the supposed wall scrapers, I saw several of his shots go way out, especially from the left side. A few are posted in this thread.

I'd expect something like .260 BA-.360 OBP-20 HRs as a midpoint for Dylan with slightly better than average defense in a corner. Best case is a .280-.290 hitter with a great batting eye (.400ish OBP) and 30 HRs with good defense. Pick your favorite comp player.

So basically, average player to a star. And I don't care so much about Hammonds Field. The guy has been very young for his level every year and has played in some of the worst hitter's parks in the minors so it's interesting to see him play in a better park for a year. Our hitting prospects are often devalued by comparing leagues and not parks at A, A+ and AAA.

Nick Markakis as a good defender in CF with speed on the bases - as opposed to a poor defending, slow-footed corner OF’er - is one of the better players of his generation.

I will gladly take that
