Yeah. There comes a time where results are what matter and looking at what I saw on the field and the results and the fact that he's already on the 40 man roster....It's just tough for me to see that player bloom in the near future.
As I said before...it won't bother me a bit if I'm wrong.
(and...yes to all those teens with the caveat that Rahier would be a lot more interesting if they would push him back to second. Pena was a teen here as well and I would back off Duran given Wily Mo's eventual fate. Votto was a teen here, but I didn't see him till he was a lookout and he was a beast by then.)

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
