Add the fact that he's now only had 3 strikeouts in 15 AB, and I'd say the transition is going fairly well.

When did being on pace for over 100 strikeouts a season become a success?

58 players in the AL stuck out more than that last year.

About the same time hitting 3/10 qualifies for HOF.

Let's not act like 15 AB's is any indicator of anything.
The interesting part of his development here will be after the book is out on him after a while. Pitchers will learn how to pitch to him and he will have to adjust.

If you think you're above failure, you'll always be beneath success.

That is my point... Basically half the starting players in the league strike out over 100 times in a full season, so why would that be a successful statistic?

I guess because most of those guys have seen more than 15 major league at bats.

But, I do see your point that that is not spectacular. But, its not a bad start at all.

I really don't understand how pointing out ultra-small sample sizes gets misconstrued as me shitting all over guys.

I want Benintendi to succeed. I'm pulling for him.
I just want his manager to continue being cautious in his development, as well.

Because you can stay in the league and make millions of dollars?

My point is that he has a lot more positives that someone could point out. I dont even understand how that stat was a compliment.

Benintendi rapidly climbing the ladder of most important people in my life... I think he just passed 10 cousins, 4 uncles and 3 aunts

It wasn't meant as a compliment. That part of the discussion was about him adjusting to the bigs.  If he was struggling with adapting to the pitching my guess is that number would've been higher.

But come rolling in well after the fact...
