redsof72 said he likely won't last, Goldstein said he likely won't last, many scouts have said it too. It seems like the experts know more about it than you or I. The longer you wait to move him to CF, which sounds like his future, the longer it's going to take him to adjust to the new position. CF is quite a bit different than SS.
