I think the power will happen. Not sure about the walks or strikeouts though.
Valid points. He's still a baby. Heck in three years he'll still be a baby. Too early to even speculate about being a bust IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
