The tale of Logan Morrison is an all too common one — so much potential, but so much disappointment. The absolute one thing I look for first when evaluating minor league talent is their strikeout-to-walk ratio, and Morrison has always excelled there. If only he’d spend more time worrying about his performance on the field instead of, well, you get the idea…
Morrison is a personality. He’s baseball’s power Tweeter, and thanks to the gutting Marlins’ owner Jeffrey Loria gave his club this offseason, he’s also the second best offensive weapon Miami has. We got a glimpse of what Morrison is capable of back in 2011, and I’m willing to give him a pass for last season. But this will be year four in the big leagues, and sooner or later Morrison is going to have to produce.
