Saw Goodwin last night. Had one chance in CF: long, huge, line drive hit off of Chien Ming Wang, who appears finished. Long run, out-stretched left arm to save probably a triple. Looks comfortable in CF.Could not hit a thing. My guess, from one game, is that both Goodwin and Rendon need at least another half-season at AA, then time in AAA to learn to hit.
More reason to not sign an expensive OF.
http://baseballnewshound.com/?p=3456nice scouting report on goodwin.
Goodwin needs one more year to mast AA and AAA, but he should be with the Nats next September. Where do they play him? I don't know...have Harper, Bernadina ahead in CF, plus Eury Perez. No matter, Goodwin is just plain fun to watch when he fields. Nats do NOT need the magic CF from outside.
Nationals Prospects@nats_prospects MT @MLBazFallLeague Factoid[sic] 4: Brian Goodwin (#Nationals) leads league w/ nine extra-base hits and a .744 slugging percentage. #AFL12
Curtis Granderson 2.0??? Same height and same weight, and their minor league path so far looks quite similar.Here are the statsGranderson minor league career http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=grande001curGoodwin http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=goodwi001bri
I'll stand by my prediction.
He's a better defender than Harper. Harper is the one that gets bumped to right.
Harper's ego seems to want one thing most: play and win. I suspect that if Goodwin is good enough, Harper moves to LF.
Except Harper was a disaster in LF, okay in RF, and fantastic in CF. Frankly, I think Goodwin starts in LF or RF until he shows that he's better than Harper.
Harper play 7 games in LF... idk how anything he did could be considered a disaster.
