Kevin Goldstein: I have a lot of concerns about Alonso. Add him to my over-hyped list, actually."
Silly? How is he "Over-hyped"? He's a top 3-7ish MILB 1b prospect... He'll probably end up a .280-.300 1b in the majors with 20-30 HR power and the ability to move risp... nobodies saying his ceiling is as a 45+ HR type of guy, or a .330 hitter... Shut up Goldstein.
