He turns 26 on friday.
Formerly a 1st round pick (#8), he hit 23 HRs last year. How come the Cafe Hype Machine wasn't all over this guy before the season? You guys are letting me down
. I just gave this guy a quick look before the season and I was really surprised how nice of a season he had all the way through, very consistent. Although, he was only 15 of 22 in his stolen base attempts last year, which is somewhat worrisome.
