Fields: a pretty good minor league career, and potential shown in his rookie season. Whether an average glove will be there is questionable (while he does have his weaknesses, i.e. range, he also has strengths: plus, accurate arm and the ability to charge the ball quite well), but do I think he can hit for decent average? Sure. Do I think he can become more patient? He's improved upon it every year. Fields is always going to strike out, but that's one of the negatives to nearly every power hitter.

Richar: good plate discipline, and the ability foul tough pitches off. He wasn't out of the AB when he got down in the count, he worked himself back into it.

Your judgment comes off of 4 months and 3 months, respectively. I guess if you're not an Evan Longoria, you suck.
