Denny can be dry but I thought he nailed the calls on the two ALCS winners. His call in 15 was great. He got about as excited as he ever gets. I think if he went too wild it would just sound fake, that's not him.

The Denny Matthews/Fred White combo of my youth may have been the quietest broadcaster pair in sports history.

But it's the same voice I heard when I was a kid listening to games as I went to sleep...and it's kind of cool still hearing that voice all these years later.

Vinnie Pasquantino finished the season with an ISO of .263 and a K% of 12.5%. The last MiLB player 23 or younger to do that in full-season ball (min. 250 PA) was Vladimir Guerrero Jr. in 2018. Willie Calhoun did it in 2017. Alex Bregman in 2016. Then no one until 2012.

It means he has an incredibly rare blend of the ability to hit for huge power production while carrying a below average strikeout rate.

Decent walk rate, too. Have no idea why the guy isn't a bigger prospect. I get he's hit only, but that didn't really stop Vlad Jr. I wonder if scouts have intel about him having slow bat speed or some mechanical flaw.

Because before this season he had only 1 year pro ball. And it was in the Rookie league as a 21 year old.

His performance this year and subsequent rocketing through the organization is changing all that. Next year's prospect lists are going to have some inclusions, I suspect.
