Default Two more

I liked the view on Hunter Pence.
Disappointed that he didn't stay on as a Phillie, but glad he found success and a ring.

Two outfielders that I saw play a couple weeks ago are rather unknown to mainstream, but very talented....

AJ Pollock and Charlie Blackmon.

I watched the AZ-Colo series down in Phoenix...those two guys are excellent all around players. Great range in the outfield, strong arms, fleet and also tremendous hitters with extra base power.

+1 Davis



One player I have always enjoyed is Seth Smith. He seems to do the little things well, and while he'll never be in HoF discussion, Smith has been solid in his MLB career.

I'll still argue with you about that. Of course I know I'll lose after looking at his stats, but at no point while watching him play during his time in Seattle did I think to myself "this guy's a HOFer".

That's because he wasn't in Seattle, though he was really, really good. He's put together a monster career since leaving though. 4 30-hr seasons while hitting for a high average, all while still playing his all-time elite-level defense at 3B, since leaving.

445 homers if he never plays another day plus elite defense at 3B. He's not just a HOF'er, he's a no-brainer HOF'er.

Maybe people are hearing about Charlie Blackmon now?

Nolan Arenado, shared Home Run title, 3 straight Gold Glove Awards. I still hear people say, (Who Is He). Put him on a big market team, everyone would know him.

Blackmon and Arenado are both outstanding but, fair or not, Rockies hitters will seldom get much recognition because of the park they play in.
