I definatly agree he is no mantle but to draw that type of comparison he must have some talent...the question is when is it gonna come forth

Well I wouldn't expect it to come out after a year where he didn't play. If he ever does take full use of his talent, it's prolly 3 or so years away. He is still pretty raw at the plate and a year off from it didn't help.

I believe he will be a good risk/reward pick when it gets into the later rounds of a draft.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

He was never compared to Mantle. The comparison that everyone has always made was to Joe DiMaggio.

He will be a solid 4th OF this year but I seem his breakout coming the following year. He will be a great player.

Interesting note: In his rookie season he was the fastest player in the majors going to first from home.

I think he can, quite easily, get .300-20-20 this season. Even though he was out a season, he's still going to have progressed.

No way he's just a 4th outfielder. He'll be a steal in almost any draft.
