VLAD GUERRERO JR - THE CASE FOR PATIENCE
VLAD GUERRERO JR is clearly struggling and this is not the start that all Blue Jays Fans wanted. It clearly shows that all those people crying fowl last year, saying Vlad is ready for the big leagues were dead wrong. I am still confident that Vlad will hit 260-280 this year with 20 homers and 75 rbi. But Vlad is clearly not as ready for stardom as many prognosticated. Pitchers have been feeding him a steady diet of fastballs, curve balls and change ups away. He has shown a lack of patience that most young players exhibit. Chasing is common action when the player is swinging hard or is trying to get out in front of pitch to drive it. The more games he plays - the more the game will slow down and things will get easier for him. We have to give credit to SHATKINS for keeping Vlad down on the farm when the entire city of baseball experts was crying fowl. He clearly wasn't ready.
