I like him except for the fact that he does not know what a walk is and walks are a category in my roto league. I picked him up off the waiver wire when he first came up and just last week was able to trade him and F.Hernandez for C.Lee and D.Hermanson.

He's a reasonaly high prospect with great tools. He's playing way over his head right now but he should have no problem locking up a starting gig for 06.

I expect him to cool off considerably in the next month or so.

He is playing over his head, yes, but he will also be a star. He's the Braves best prospect in my opinion, Andy Marte be damned.

Mart is still the #1 Braves prospect IMO.

Hes going to be a good everyday player, I don't know about a top round stud in the future since he has really bad plate discipline for a player of his caliber but really that seems to be his only problem.

Didn't Corey Patterson have a start like this? And see where his terrible plate discipline has gotten him?

Agree w/ playing w/ fire. He's finished! Washed up! Already peaked!

Assessment, solid major leaguer, couple all-star games, but playing over his head right now.
