NFT: Gary Sanchez has a bit of power, doesn't he?

Kid is impressive.

But maybe not for hitting a 430-foot BP home run?
Yankee

fan scoffed at my keeper fantasy league offer of Sanchez for Bregman (right when Sanchez got hot, I was trying to capitalize on him being a Yankee fan). Now I'm beyond happy it didn't go through (though Bregman should be excellent as well).
I saw him live this year

In person you can see he really has a special quality. Ball jumped off his bat.

Reminded me of the first time I saw Jose Reyes in person. The ball sounded and looked different coming off his bat. Just exploded.
Envisioning

Harper-Sanchez-Bird in the heart of the lineup. Seems too good to be true. Most likely is.

Yup I saw one of his first games at the stadium last season, he ripped a double in the gap first time up and I swear you could see the smoke trails coming off the ball he hit it so hard
It's scary how much he resembles

a young Manny Ramirez or Miguel Cabrera at the plate. Smart hitter who hits everything hard. Throwing a Harper or Machado into this core almost seems unfair, but we'll have the resources to do it when the time comes.
One reason I am so high on him

is not so much the distance there and that everything off his bat is coming off hard...it's that his swing seems so effortless. He has very good mechanics and seems to have a good eye. Those are two good indicators that he can continue success at the MLB level, although it is very hard to imagine him continuing anywhere near the pace he was on last year.
He's a huge talent...

still, we should temper our expectations. Anything less than .280/30/100 is going to strike some folks as a disappointment.
