Now up to .295 with 33 steals for Bakersfield. Bats in the two hole and plays CF.

Perhaps he's not the "second-round bust" that many feared earlier this season. Not saying he's great, but it's good to see him turn it around and have a good season.

Some power would be nice, but after Cozart, Mesoraco, Sappelt, etc, this organization seems to have a good idea of how to tap into power potential. I think that part of his game will show up eventually.

Yeah, I agree ... he lacks in the power department. But he's got a lot more speed than I thought. Either that, or he's just a great baserunner.

Drew Stubbs has a lack of power as well. Does LaMarre strike out as much as Stubbs?

Not quite as much. He's not exactly Torreyes either though.

How do you figure? There are only 9 CFs in the majors that have more home runs than Stubbs as of now. I'd say that's pretty solid. And when Stubbs hits a homer, they are usually no doubters.

He has more speed than you thought. He is a plus runner.

That is my point, exactly. When Stubbs was in the minors, everyone kept talking about his lack of power. He has done fine.

LaMarre had a pretty severe wrist injury in college that may just now be healing completely. He will never be Babe Ruth, but if he can give you a decent OBP and put up 15 dingers, and play good defense in CF, then he will be fine. His speed alone ought to earn him some SLG points.

Stubbs doesn't lack power he lacks contact.
