I've not been around long and am confused about how people feel of BP.
My assumption was the vast majority loved him and is many people's favorite player.....this being a Reds forum.
Here are my honest thoughts....
I think he's a HOF talent (don't think he'll do enough to quite make it) I think he's a better hitter than his average shows but he feels the need to hit the glamorous home runs a good bit too much.
I think his defensive abilities are amazing but get annoyed as sometimes he Jim Edmonds' plays and even more when he does that and errors. I believe his range is excellent but exaggerated by the Reds TV guys.
He seems like a big kid and is looking to have a great time....but also a hot dog. with too much "look at me" at times.
I think batting 4th he should get 100 RBI and near 100 runs.....he's never done that but this year is looking good.
I don't believe other players and managers have as high opinion of him as many of us do.
Overall, I think he's incredibly talented, a hot dog, but also glad he laces them up for the Reds at 2nd base every day.
Please share what you think of BP. Thanks
