Default Viciedo

Most recent line: will be updated to 20 home runs by tomorrow.

I wonder when he will begin making his impact. This kid can become a monster.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

Not optimistic at all. He's a liability at 3B, and a move to 1B brings with it increased offensive expectations as well as more defensive questions. Couple that with no plate discipline whatsoever and I have low expectations.

Viciedo has still walked just 9 times in 416 total at bats this season about 5 hours ago via web

Monster??? He can also be a flop. He may have the worse walk/strikeout ratio of any player in AAA 10/76. It was worse in his short stint in Chicago. I am sure management is not sure if he will ever have a position in the field but he is 21 and time will tell. Until he learns the strike zone he is a long way from a Major League everyday player even as a DH.

I have this recurring nightmare that the Sox cant reach agreement with Konerko this off season......and on opening day 2011 I hear Honda announce our starting first baseman is Dayan......

It appears that Viciedo was born to DH.

Unfortunately, you need some maturity, experience, and plate discipline to do that, and he is lacking in all three right now.

The kid is 20 years old, I am hard pressed to name many 20 year old major leaguers who have a lot of plate discipline.

He shouldn't be a major leaguer yet. His 2.7% BB rate this year in the minors isn't going to cut it. Plate discipline isn't something that just turns on like a light switch. And it certainly isn't something to be learned in the majors. I don't think Dayan is wired to become a walk machine, but I do think he needs to become more selective if he plans on having a successful major league career. Especially considering the defensive value he lacks.
