I've heard this before. I'll take my chances on 23 year olds who hit 25 homers their first full year, and can go deep into right center.
There were 56 players that struck out more than Viciedo last season.
I wonder what you thought about Austin Jackson a year ago. Got on at about the same clip as Viciedo and struck out 50% more.
Carlos Lee was quite similar to Viciedo at the same age, although he got a few more hits, but less strikeouts, walks and homers.
