Yeah, for sure, just sayin'. With Machado, like every other young player, I'll hold off judgment for awhile because it happens so often that talented young kids come up, hit the shit out of the ball for awhile, and then pitchers start to figure them out. Those that can make adjustments become good hitters, those that struggle to become Jeff Francoeur, and those that just straight up can't become Travis Snider (who is still young, just an example from this thread though) or Geovany Soto.
