Batting in front of Joey Votto in the 2 hole really seems to be working. If he can put his tools together and keep a steady mind he could easily be an all-star centrefielder. I'm not saying he's going to keep up that pace, but you can see little changes that everyone always complained about. He's making more contact, he's taking the ball opposite, and he's being aggressive with a shorter swing. He's hitting the ball real hard right now.

Let's hope he can become the player we all hoped he would be.
