I know many people look at his K rates in the minors or the batting avg (which arent even that bad) and think he wont be very good but many scouts including the Jays think the bat will eventually come around and they see these guys way more behind the scenes and what they are good at and capable of.
The good thing about Gose is that even tho his bat looks like a question mark at this point hes shown a propensity to walk at a pretty good rate and that bodes well for his future.
Agreed. I guess we really shouldn't worry HOW he gets on base as long as he gets there.
If he could ever get to a .280 he would make an incredible 1-2 punch with Reyes.
With a (hypothetical) top 4 of Reyes, Gomes(hitting .280), Bautista, Encarnacion, just how many times would we be leading 2-0 or better in the 1st after these guy are done?
One on base. One Homerun. Seems so simple sitting here in December doesn't it?
