What does everyone think that his season will look like? And just what does the future hold? Can he have a Texiera type impact? Is he a Ryan Howard clone?

It's really hard to say for '06, simply because he hasn't faced much MLB pitching. I like him to be a better fantasy player than Howard down the stretch, but probably not this season.

Can he have a Teixeira-type impact? Well, if you mean a season like Teix's rookie campaign (66-26-84-1-.259), he sure can... well, minus the stolen base. :*)

However, it would be a longshot to think he could put up numbers like Teix has over the past two seasons, especially as early as Teix did it in his career. Teix is a special fantasy player, helped out by being in a great hitter's park. Guys like him don't come along too often, so he's really not a fair measuring stick.

fair point. Anyone else have any ideas of what to expect form him both for this year and the near future?

This year I'd say about .275 - 25 HR - 75-80 rbi depending on where they bat him. In the future who knows, he has a very high ceiling (40 HR potential) and could be very good.

Oh and on SB's, you might be pretty surprised at Prince. He has easily out stolen Tex in the minors, in fact the last 2 years he has 19 SB's total. Of course he doesn't have the best SB success ratio, but the big man can run better then you think. ;-)

Is 25-28 HR's & 90 RBI's really that far out of the question?

No, but that's probably a bit optimistic. I wouldn't draft him expecting those numbers.

That's possible, but for a rookie season, that's alot. Still he has the potential to do that, so we'll just have to wait and see.

I think he's batting 3rd in the Brewers lineup (behind Rickie Weeks, in front of Carlos Lee).

I did not know that. That is some weird and wild stuff. ;-7

Seriously, though... I didn't even look at his SB numbers. How embarassed would you be as part of a battery that let Prince Fielder steal a base off you? :-o

i dont think its so much that he can run, but that little middle infielders covering 2b get scared when they see all 300lbs of prince fielder bearing down on them.

Fielder is a better breed than Howard.

I don't see any reason why he wouldn't have a similar impact as Teixeira did in his rookie year except for an injury. He did sprain his elbow and although not considered serious, if this bothers him he could get off to a slow start.
