I guess I'm being kind of optimistic. I just think that he sounds like a Ryan Braun type player. From what I heard he doesn't play good defense. I believe I have heard his hands refered to as rocks. That sounds to me like Braun. His numbers are kind of similar to Braun's. He has terrific power, and a good average.
games: 113 69
averages .324 .313
homeruns 34 20
rbi 97 63
ops 1.004 .987
Those look pretty similar to me.
