that's damn good IMO for a just turned 18 year old kid against...well "men"
I agree that he's held his own, considering his age.

Initially I was simply looking at his last 10 games, to see how he's progressed. In his last 10 games, he struck out 19 times and walked only 3, in 37 at-bats (40 plate appearances). He his just .108 in those last 10 games. So, he really struggled with contact, which was really my only point. I've believed in the kid since day 1, and been excited about him. That hasn't changed, but he'll need time.

If there's a problem with a couple of us discussing Nolan Gorman (statistics, timeline, etc.) in the Nolan Gorman Mega Thread, then I'd suggest you get with the mods. Otherwise, it comes off as you whining just for the sake of whining.

A billionty.

Personally, I'm happy for Nolan and hope his mama is proud to bust.

Trying to figure out why a Cardinals and Rays prospect are chilling in a room dominated by a D'backs logo.
