He'll have to make adjustments back or become Boesch 2.0 or Chris Shelton 2.0.

That... will be the test to pass to see if he's real...

I do like the fact that he works a pretty good AB, but this is right. 

The odds are that he's Boesch or Shelton, but who doesn't love an underdog? Especially with this team that otherwise doesn't score or hit home runs with any regularity?

If he has weaknesses, they probably already know about them.  I believe the reason some players strart out strong and then quickly fade is that pitchers don't want to waste all their high stress pitches on a rookie and they want to see if they can get him out with less than their best.  I am not saying this is what's happening with Carpenter.  I am speaking in general.

This sound reasonable.  Add in the fact that he’s not a highly rated prospect.  Some random call up is probably worth going two pitches deep on.  Save the third/fourth for other established hitters.

On the flip side, I would think opposing pitchers go after someone like Torkleson as though they aren’t a rookie.  It’s not to say that’s why Torkleson has struggled.
