I'm not sure there is any hype around Vitters and Jackson anymore....
Also, re: Vogelbach:
"Out of every 100 kids drafted and signed, four make it to the major leagues"
This is extraordinarily misleading. You're saying don't get caught up in the hype about a guy who was drafted in the second round because of a bunch of guys drafted in the 30th round never made it. Why get excited about any prospects if nearly all of them fail?
Yes, Vogelbach is slow. But he's a first baseman with exceptional bat speed generated with a short stroke and the huge power to put a lot of balls over the fence. I've also seen Vogelbach a lot, and I've been impressed with his bat. He needs a lot of work, but that's why he's in A ball right now.
He also has great makeup, something that I don't believe gets discussed enough. It's not just that he has lost all that weight. I sat on him for an entire series last weekend as was amazed at how he responded to a few things:
He weakly grounded out to the pitcher on a hittable pitch, busted his ass down the line, and was clearly upset with himself. He then spent the next inning talking to himself. He had a couple of other at bats with poor outcomes and did the same thing. Vogelbach is very hard on himself at times.
But then the next day he came out and had a great day, with a home run and a double into the left centerfield gap. He bounced back from a day where he was deep in his own head with a great game. That means a lot to me.
Maybe don't buy anyone telling you that Vogelbach is going to be a superstar, but I think he has a great shot of at least getting to the majors
