Assuming he will be starting in CF come July is silly. It may happen, but we are talking about a kid who hasn't even hit AAA pitching yet.
I think 50/50 to "pan out" is about right. I think the odds are even more unfavorable to Hamilton ever performing at the rate that Fowler has performed over the last year and a half. Especially now that he's not a shortstop anymore.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
