The point is, he is doing stuff at a age that "suggests" superstar. Similiar with Upton. While Maybin after a good 2 month start, has falling by the wayside the last 5 weeks. Maybe Maybin has a better career than Bruce and Upton, his current numbers don't suggest it.
    I can see Bruce's progression and am very excited by it, but to say that he will be a perennial 1.000 OPS guy is suggesting that he is a sure shot HOF.

    It's just a little early for that.

    Well to you is it a little early to ever say that until a guy has done it 3 years running?

    No...but if Vlad has only done it 3 times in his career, it's a bit aggressive to say he'll be a perennial OPSer of 1.000.

    Especially since everyone says that the reason people are so "down" on Dunn is because of unrealistic expectations being placed on him while he was still in the minors. You are witnessing another situation similar to that.

    That is not why people are down on Dunn. People are down on Dunn becuase he is the most frustrating baseball player they have ever seen.
