The main point of concern that I have about Morales is that his ISO power is mostly from HRs, which suggests that he’s getting something of a boost from his environments. I’d be more inclined to be optimistic about him if he were hitting more doubles.

But isn’t one of the reasons that he’s not getting a lot of doubles the fact that he’s played in HR-friendly environs?  Arkansas inflates HR 46% (by Szym’s three-year weighted park factors) and 2B 21%; Rancho Cucamonga, where he didn’t play very long, inflates HR by only 6% (compared to the rest of the Cal League, so still very friendly) but is pretty neutral on 2B (a 98% park factor there).  Salt Lake has an 83% park factor for 2B, but is good for HR.


Here’s the pitch to Lofton.  Fly ball, center field ... Erstad says he’s got it!!  Erstad ... makes the catch!  The Anaheim Angels are the champions of baseball!
