Pretty optimistic *hit. I hope ALL the higher end prognostications are correct!

Drinking the Kool Aid.

I'm curious why Hop has Jace leading the team in BA with .364, but is the only one to not have him lead the team in HRs? I think the only way that happens is if he is injured for part of the season. If Jace hits .364 over a full season, he's hitting 30 bombs.

I think he's going to be more selective at the plate and become more of a mature, dynamic hitter as a sophomore than the big swing and miss home run guy he was last year as a freshman. So the result is more contact and better average, but slightly less power (still 20 jacks which isn't anything to sneeze at).
