Re: Jay Bruce #1 on BA Hotsheet and Francisco in the team photo
Here is one of my questions:
Q: Brandon from Charleston, WV asks:
Chris Valaika - the next Michael Young? Is that a fair comparison? Same college, similar hitters, and both lack solid range at SS?
A: Matt Eddy: Not the worst comp in the world, but Young is and was much more athletic. And while he's not an ideal shortstop, Young is playable at the major league level. Valaika is a hitting machine, but he'll probably break into the big leagues as a second baseman, like Young did.
