There was a recent article in "The Athletic" about Madrigal - with quotes from Luis Robert, Zack Collins and Andrew Vaughn. Madrigal was all the other top prospects - favorite prospect. They respected his commitment to the game - the were amazed by his quick thinking while the ball was in play (AJ type presence of mind) - his ability to put bat on ball - and his amazingly low strike out rate. He was portrayed at the kind of ballplayer - other ballplayers go to for professional advice.

From what I seen and heard he will be a fan favorite, a consistent contributor, a nifty defender. He will likely bring intangibles positives to the team effort.

Yomer is one of my favorite players - he also brings positive intangibles to the club house and top defense in the field. I expect Yomer will become the Utility infielder guy - and get plenty of at bats spelling the other infielders.
