The Nolan Gorman Mega Thread

Post by Big Amoco Sign »

Nolan Gorman rules.

5 home runs and OPSing over 1.000 already in Johnson City.

Jumping the gun maybe but I think he could be something really special for this club.

His power was always going to overwhelm the kids he'd face of similar ages. His approach is pretty advanced and his hit tool is developed. Move him to State College and see what he does there.

The bat is a great positive right now, but what is really intriguing is that reports are that his defense has been solid. If he stays at 3B you're looking at a legit star. As a 1B he's probably still good, but that bar is so much higher.

"Bruised hand, out for a week" in Cardinals speak= Mangled hamate bone, will never recover grip strength, becomes lumbering singles hitter with no accuracy, out of baseball at 22.
