What's his story? Is he in that Texas lineup for good? And if so is he worth picking up?

Right now he is red hot, so I would drop some guy that I drafted in the 20th round just to see how it goes. I would hate to see someone else snag him for free and he keeps this up.

This guy is the real deal. He's got a sweet swing. I don't think he'll put up great numbers this year, but keep an eye on him. If you're in a deep dynasty league, then I'd pick him up right now. Otherwise, he won't get enough AB's to put up great numbers this year (Buck picks and chooses which pitchers to send him out against - did it w/ blalock 2 yrs ago, nix last year, a gon this year)

does have a sweet swing, from what I know, not a big homer guy, more of a good average man, but he has jacked 2 out last 2 days i believe, I think hell get a ton of at bats as the DH , i would pick him up, hell probably turn into Blalock, Tex in a couple years ;-)

He reminds me an awful lot of Palmeiro...sweet swing, looks like a good doubles hitter now but definitely shows some pop, and he is pretty wise at the plate. The guy is a foul ball machine, it is prett fun to watch. He will just foul off balls until he gets a pitch he can hit. He is playing well for a rookie.

any idea if the power will come. he's got a real sweet swing, but have heard him compared to an olerud type hitter, not that there is anything wrong with that. 2 straight with a hr, and a long double last night.

what do you see his value being this year, and more importantly, into the future? :-?

thanks ;-D
