Vlad Jr's first half: 📈 or 📉
Vladimir Guerrero Jr will be fine. Better than fine. There’s no reason to believe anything otherwise. There’s no way to sincerely doubt the vast reservoir of talent residing within the Blue Jays’ third baseman. But the story of Vlad’s first half is one of disappointment. He’s treading water but, the thing is, it wasn’t supposed to be like this. And yet, with a .249/.328/.413 line and just 8 home runs in 253 plate appearances, it very much is. We’ve seen incredible promise and moments of brilliance but those memories are getting pounded into the ground like so many rolled over breaking balls away.
