Move over Peddy, we have a new laser show.
How many more will Iggy hit by the end of Spring training? I say 5.
He has always had alright power. The problem is contact.
He had good contact last year. Problem was the ball went right at someone most of the time. he had a lot of back luck last year.
He doesnt have "alright power" though. As I said 5 homers in his entire pro career.
First off, I agree that Iglesias will never be known for his power. But if a guy can add strength and weight he should be able to increase his power. I know there is much more to the equation, but all things considered more strength equals more power......in the absence of that belief one would have to assume Alex Rodriguez and Barry Bonds deserve every home run they got.
Now I have no idea what iggy will do, but for arguments sake lets say he was a 1-3 Hr guy before.....perhaps with his added size and strength he has the potential to hit 8-9 while beating up the green monster with a few more doubles as well.
I do understand the ridiculousness of getting excited over 1 home run in a spring training game. But non the less he had the power to put one over the fence after we've been told hed been working on adding strength.
Im still intrigued by Iglesias, and he's still learning.....at least that's what the scouts tell me.
