Skenes got shelled in his first start with Altoona. Did that change your thoughts?

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the MLB. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Pittsburgh Pirates fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.

Top pick Paul Skenes came in with a lot of fan fare. He also quickly moved up the Minor League rungs before getting a rude awakening this past Saturday, as he struggled with his control, giving up four earned runs, two walks and three hits while only recording two outs and not making it out of the first inning.

What we want to know is, has the hype train cooled for you on Skenes and made you temper your expectations a bit on his top end?

Tell us your opinion in the comments, thanks for voting and we’ll be back soon with the results.
