He tomahawked that ball.

I don't see him getting another hit in the Series. But then I didn't see him getting that hit.

He's the poster boy, that's for sure.

Pretty significant fall from grace, as he was sent to AAA today after the Granderson acquisition.

Do we blame the HR Derby? That seems to be the media's fall back these days.

You're in a 15-team mixie, well past the halfway point. Time to pick up your fourth outfielder. The two best remaining candidates are Jackie Bradley and Joc Pederson. Who do you take?

For Greg Wellemeyer at BP the answer's easy.

...Upside

I’m nearly certain that the 2016 iteration of Bradley is the
best version we’ll see. Even though he’ll play 2017 at 27 years old,
there’s nowhere left to project growth. For the contextual reasons I
stated above and because I doubt he can get to 20 homers with any
consistency, this category is a clear win for Pederson. It’s not hard to
imagine Pederson improving enough at the dish to force a move into a
run-producing role in the thick of the National League’s second best
lineup. To top it off, he has the power potential to clear 30 big flies
per year through his prime. Don’t take my word for it: PECOTA’s 90th percentile outcome for Pederson is 98/34/101/10/.263, which thoroughly outclasses Bradley’s 79/20/77/8/.283. Advantage: Pederson

Overall

My stated preference
is to weigh upside heavily as a differentiator, so it’s probably no
surprise that I’m siding with Pederson here. Though all categories
except home runs are close at present, Bradley seems destined to be a
streaky middle class option, while you can still dream on Joc taking a
step forward into the position’s upper tiers.

And the winner is… Joc Pederson.
