Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I'm aware of other statistics but you are speaking as if this guy is a career singles hitter with no eye. Which would be fine if he was 27 or 28 years old. He's 22 YEARS OLD. He led the NL in hits at the age of 21, an age where most of his peers aren't even in the majors yet. You have a seven year deal in which he will come out of at the age of 29. You are going to get the best years out of this guy. You give him stability with a manager, the players that surround him and give him a fucking role and see what happens. He's hit everywhere in the lineup and has no idea what his own organization wants him to be. I don't see him as the next Matt Kemp or anything but I think you've got yourself a solid two hole hitter for the next 7 years. Man you guys could do a lot worse than that. Just give him time, watch him develop, there is way too much upside to this guy.
