Should we be caring about this guy at all? I know he's 27, but over the last 2 seasons between AA and AAA he's batting like .325 with a stolen base record of 51-12. The fact that he plays outfield will probably keep him from ever being a regular, but this is the most quiet .346/.388/.381 23-5 line I've ever heard of.

Just from observations from the spring training games on TV when he was with the big league club, he looked overmatched at the plate but looked like he had very good speed and a good glove......

He has been the hottest player on the Bats ever since Deno was called up....he was the Bats hitter of the month for July

Norris Hopper - Ryan Freel minus some speed and a little man in his head.

Big draw in Dayton.
