I think he'll be moved up in the lineup soon, and then he'll suck again. But I am watching him as well.
True... but the fact that he is not swinging at everything (and missing) is very encouraging IMO. He has to be laying off more bad pitches since he's not intentionally being walked.
He's at the top of the list of people I'm watching. He went on a tear last year too so I want to wait a bit and see whether he is really different now.
