    How would he not project well? Besides the insanely good numbers, he's got good size (6'2", 215 lbs.), quick bat speed, and a great make-up. Plus, he's already shown he can rake with wood bats.

    Not my projection...just saying why someone would think that he isn't a 30 HR guy even though he has similar college numbers as Braun.

    I actually see a lot more Travis Hafner than Todd Helton in Alonzo's build and swing.

    Couldn't agree more! I see the same thing myself. I wouldn't mind a good version of Trafis Hafner one bit.

    He better start hitting the HGH now if he has any chance of catching Pujols. Pujols can go right into Tony LaRussa's PED lab in LaRussa's basement and load up any time he wants. It really gives the Cardinals' hitters an unfair edge. The place is even called the "Big Mac Basement."

    Pre-2007 Hafner would be great and I agree that he's a good comp for Alonso.

    Travis Hafner, yet another obvious PED user.

    Did anyone see an interview with Miami's coach when he mentioned that Alonso was incredibly excited about the fact that once he signs, he will be presented his jersey by Tony Perez at home plate at GAB. Pretty cool thing to do by the Reds.
