Default When will you start worrying about Yoan Moncada?

Did not hit well in the majors last year. Is not hitting well in spring training this year.

When is he officially on bust watch?

He is a bust. He had a two hit performance without any homeruns yesterday. It is obvious, through five games in spring as well as a major league performance where he hit .300 plus in the last month of the season, that he is a bust.

Honestly, it has been a rough ride for him over his two months of baseball, and he should look to a career in coaching. Very sad what happens when you perform poorly for a month, and then five games in spring training.

You become a bust. Definitely 100 percent super bust.

He managed a 102 OPS+ last year.

Did you just think "Hmm, what topic could I troll on today?" and land on this one?

I was going to reply to this thread topic, but thought better of it.

Black Panther was not even nominated for an Oscar. The movie was a HUGE bust.

The real question we should be asking is why Moncada hasn't won the MVP yet? BUST WATCH.

If you are not yet worried about Moncada, what would it take for you to worry about him? One full season of mediocre play? More than that? Less than that?

3,000 plate appearances. Maybe 4,000.

OVER 9,000 Plate Appearances. ;)

To be real, probably a whole season, but that wouldn't necessarily worry me: if anything, it'll just confirm what I've already thought about him.

Does the k-rate worry you that much?

No - I think I've been plenty positive about many things
  • I'm a long-term Rodon optimist. I have taken the position in many threads that Rodon's current injury status is of little macrohistorical concern, he does not need to have a good MLB season until 2020 and 2021
  • I am similarly a Burger optimist - I think he can come back from his terrible recent injury, but have not yet voiced this opinion on WSI
  • I have doubts about Luis Robert, almost entirely to do with his injury history, but have kept quiet about them.
  • I have been at the forefront of telling people to stop complaining about Tatis, he's gone.
  • I even recently expressed optimism about Yolmer Sanchez and compared him to Juan Uribe, which is high praise from me. Even at my most negative and cynical, I always said good things about Juan Uribe. He was "my boy", exempt from the pessimism and doubt I had for the rest of the Sox.

However, Yoan Moncada is a top-rated prospect we received by trading away possibly the best player to ever put on a White Sox uniform, certainly the best pitcher to wear a White Sox uniform in my lifetime. He is a centerpiece of this rebuild. And he has so far not impressed me. I was wondering what other thoughtful Sox fans were thinking, and when they would join me in worrying.

No, his inability to hit a breaking ball when it's over the middle of the plate (or breaking pitches in general) is what worries me that much.

His K-rate doesn't bother me too much, considering the way that MLB is going. He also walks a good amount, so that mitigates some indigestion on that front.
