“Speed, power, attitude, hustle—and he’s got every intangible you could ever want in a player,” said another.
“He’s got more ability than George Brett, and I was George’s roommate in Kansas City,”
Boy, I can't wait to see him on the Yankees.
If it means Bryce Harper staying in Washington in 2019, be my guest.
"In time," said Farrell, "as long as health is on his side, he's going to put himself in position for everybody to take notice of who Brett Lawrie is."
At some point bringing that up is more evidence of your immaturity than his.
“Oh my God,” said another.
Since 1900, only a dozen other players have had an OPS that high at age 21 or younger, in a season in which they got as many at-bats as Lawrie got in 2011. There's not a Shane Spencer-ish fluke in the bunch.
Ten of those players are now in the Hall of Fame. An 11th (Albert Pujols) is a lock to join them. The 12th was Hal Trosky, whose spectacular career path was cut short by migraines.
There is only one other name on the list: Brett Lawrie. Whew.
I wonder if he'll be better than Eric Chavez or Eric Hinske. Maybe even Jason Heyward.
This schtick is almost as old as #1.
Has Sam already turned on Jesus Heyward?
“Now obviously, he doesn’t have 3,000 hits or [three] batting titles or an MVP award, so he’s got a long ways to go. But he runs and he plays with the same kind of intensity as George did.
Yes, no, and maybe.
I don't think Brett Lawrie is going to be a .350 hitter, I'm not sure he'll be a .300 hitter.
How can someone be better than Eric Chavez without being better than Eric Hinske?
