    Mike Moustakas

    Talk about someone living up to the hype...

    Hit 3 HR's tonight and had 11 RBI. E L E V E N. IN a 9 inning game...

    For the year between AA and AAA at 21 years old:

    .326 AVG / 39 2B / 34 HR / 119 RBI... only 64 K's all year against 73 XBH, 1.010 OPS.

    I have changed my opinion on who should be MiLB POY.

    This guy could be as close to a lock as KC has had for Superstardom since Carlos Beltran.

    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Re: Mike Moustakas

    I have kind of been surprised he hasn't mentioned in the few names I see thrown out here for Player of the Year. Obviously I would love Mesoraco to win it and think he is deserving of some votes but Moustakas has been scary good at the plate. It has only been about 2 years since I saw him at low A, wonder if the fielding has gotten any better because it was BAD back then.

    Closest thing to a sure thing since Alex Gordon
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    That's quite a night for the offense. The Majik Man strikes again.

    Not really the same thing. Gordon was called up after one (though impressive) season in the minors. He had just over 500 PAs down there, all in one AA stop.

    Moustakas has now had over 1,5000 PAs and is putting together a season, partially a level higher than Gordon did mind you, that rivals some of the more impressive minor league performances in recent memory.

    It seems there's more to draw from with Moustakas than there was with Gordon. He was much heralded in the same way, but there was never much time to find the kinks in his game. Moustakas got some of those rough patches out of the way last year.

    No kidding I was impressed until I seen most of the damage was off of Majewski.
