.423/.503/.886 in 149 AB. That's a 1.389 OPS.

17 HR, 50 RBI, 14 2B, 2 3B. Yeah, over half his hits have been for extra bases.

He's 26, but... I am quiet curious as to how he does. He was 2-14 during his first call up in 2007.

Since I have connections to him here in Indy I hope he does well even though he is a dastardly Cub, but until I see different I think he is nothing more than Champ Summers or Roberto Petagine.

I've never understood that. He threw it from 200 feet away(pitchers mound to centerfield right?) and still had enough on it to not only bruise, but break a bone.
Wow could he throw hard.

Wow could he throw hard.IIRC, she said that the ball hit her, and bounced into her drink. I guess he was told to apologize, but did it in a bad way. I'll try and email her.
