Though this is highly unlikely we will be seeing the next Cal, im just sayin don't be suprissed if he proves to e a very solid player this year.
I'm not sure where you read that, but unless they were talking about their gloves ... I don't think it's a good comparison. Look at it this way, he is in a bad ball park, a bad line up, isn't going to hit for power, and you have a 3B you shouldn't bother with. He could be nice in the future, .300 avg 20 HR power, but right now he isn't worth much of anything
