JD Martinez…. the power surge will disappear like a thief in the night. Retrace your steps on power hitters who rely on arms, hands and wrists….they come and go and mostly seem to go fast. Body and athleticism are already in question here. How will the bat age when he’ll have to rely on the other forces to move the bat? Will there be mobility below the hips with age? Is he a replaceable asset?
(Remember Jayson Werth? Ellsbury? Kemp? Jason Heyward? Never forget.)
