- quality of bats
- he can just hit the ball
him being stronger will obviously amount to hitting more homeruns, but his swing is a home run swing, I expect him to get at least a double in every at-bat.
he can hit, that's for sure.
Pitching may be weak, but it's weak for everyone.
Balls? Same for everyone
Bats? Anyone in the bigs can get a good bat.
That leaves us with the fact that the man can flat out hit. I think his hand - eye is probably the best in the league. The fact that he is a monster means that a lot of those hits are out of the park, but even if he wasn't huge, I think he would still be a force.
